What Are Historical Simulations?
Historical simulations are virtual reality experiences where the student plays a character in history and must make decisions and solve problems as people in history did. Historical simulations are a wonderful way to make the lessons we have learned from history stay with students. It also actively engages students in problem solving and critical thinking skills.
