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:
- Civilization--Sid Meier’s Civilization game (fee required)
- Mission US–students role play the American Revolution or the Civil War
- Oregon Trail–a browser-based edition
- Adventures of Jasper Woodbury–fee based but great reputation for teaching math in a game environment
- ExploreLearning Gizmos–simulations in math and science
