  • http://www.northwesternmutual.com/games/longevity/longevity-main.html
    Developed by Northwestern Mutual Insurance, this game allows you to calculate your life expectancy based on lifestyle as well as genetics. The question of "how long will you live" and the activity of calculating that lifespan are great introductions for the unit on adulthood and aging. It is an activity that engages most students since everyone is interested how long he or she will live. The activity can serve as a jumping off point for discussing the influences on secondary aging. The activity could also be used in the Health Psychology unit since it highlights the impact of lifestyle on longevity. The site includes a section of advice from centenarians on how to live to be 100.
