    I have discovered a browser version of The Oregon Trail. Students have to problem solve how to enter the commands (They have always used a mouse and struggle with just keyboard commands) and then the problem solving/critical thinking of the game itself.

      You are wonderful. I spent a lot of time looking for a good browser-based version of this and gave up. Thanks, Frank.
