Roman Town™ is a social studies-based, problem-solving game that guides players through the ruins of the archaeological site of Pompeii to play challenging mini-games, discover clues, and explore the ancient Roman culture. The interactive educational game engages middle grade students in the ancient civilization through conversations with characters, exploration of the ruins, and artifacts woven into its mini-games, which include Calculi and Knucklebones, based on real ancient Roman games.
Why we like it: Twins Charlie and Fiona are off to the rescue in these Roman ruins. An archaeological site is home to virtual play and games that get kids interested and involved in math and history. With the information and content shared through activities, this app unfolds just like a story.
