Historical miniatures (paper or plastic toy soldiers)
Goal: This web site ( http://www.juniorgeneral.org/load.php?Period=1 ) is intended to promote the use of historical simulations as a tool for teaching history by providing free resources that anyone can use. The simulations make use of historical miniatures (paper or plastic toy soldiers), maps and counters, and matrix arguments. The simulations are designed for students in grades 6 – 8. Each scenario is complete with everything needed to run the simulation except dice and rulers.
