Free Technology for Teachers: European Exploration - A Game for Learning About The Age of Discovery

Free Technology for Teachers: European Exploration - A Game for Learning About The Age of Discovery | Pie 3.14 History | Scoop.it

Students have to manage the finances of their expeditions so that they don't run out of money before they can return home safely."
