Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a link to a list of games for teaching Civics. The games are either free or low-cost and include such titles as Budget Hero, Peacemaker, and Branches of Power. Many of them are engaging and would add to student understanding of the relevant topics. It would be helpful to have a summary of each game that could highlight the topics and include suggestions as to how the games could be effectively integrated into the curriculum.
