How I Use It
I typically use this simulation after discussing the Boston Massacre in class. I get the students started and then let me play at their own pace. One nice feature is the ability to save your progress and then log in to continue later. Materials in the teacher resource section suggestion ways to make this simulation cover an entire week or just a couple class periods. It can be adapted to fit your time constraints.
My Take
Both Mission US online simulations are great and my students enjoy this approach to learning about Boston and the events leading to the Revolution. The game is well designed. There are a ton of great teacher resources included to support the game.
