History Simulations

Interactive History Simulations

For years, HistorySimulation.com has been providing interactive activities for teachers to help bring history to life for students. From the American Revolution to the Cold war, many teachers rely on them to educate. Now, these same programs are available online, which makes them even easier for teachers to use.

The online versions are designed to relate historic events to students and involve them in history. They can change history and come to understand why these events happened.

History simulations are not scripted plays. In fact, the outcome can be in doubt to the very end. Why? Because even though students in different classes may have the same objectives-it’s how they go about achieving them which taps into their creativity and innovation.

Different circumstances and leaders help to tap into student’s problem-solving skills.

Gamification In The Classroom

These history activities are full of social studies concepts like conflict and war. Many countries have the same objectives, and that naturally creates conflict.

Gamification is beneficial to students.

Students are excited to learn and compare their actions with what the real leaders of that time period did.
