This is an exciting list–great simulations I’ve found around the internet. Some of the entries have more than one.

A note: some must be downloaded and a few purchased, so the link might take you to a website that provides access rather than play:

  1. Bridge Builder—learn how to design and test bridges
  2. Dimension U–games that focus on math and literacy–fee-based
  3. Electrocity—how does electricity contribute to the growth of communities
  4. iCivics—experience what it means to be part of a democracy
  5. Second Life—simulates just about anything if you can find it


  1. Adventures of Jasper Woodbury–fee based but great reputation for teaching math in a game environment
  2. Dimension M–math simulations, MS and HS–well-reputed
  3. Math by Design--design with math

Problem Solving

  1. Choose your own adventure--great list from Larry Ferlazzo
  2. CSI Online Adventure
  3. Quandary–an ethics problem solving game from MIT


  1. Sports Network 2–practice reading skills in a simulated setting as you build a network


  1. Dig hole through the earth with Google Earth
  2. Science simulations—lots of choices at 7th grade level
