Social Studies Games - From 1990s Computers

If your old like me, then you may remember classrooms' with one PC or Mac. This was before the internet, so there wasn't anything to do with a computer at school except play games. Some of these games did a decent job of teaching the content.

Here are some of my favorite social studies games on old school computers (literally - old school).
*all of these games will run in your browser. No download needed.
