Presented is the third component, Educational Simulations, of a special day class educational program for drug dependent minors. One objective of the project is said to have been the identification of instructional methods and materials suited to drug dependent minors. Educational games and simulations designed to provide practice in reading and arithmetic at the fifth or sixth grade level are described. Recommendations for use of the games include photocopying game materials in case of loss and adequate teacher preparation. Briefly described are the characteristics of each game or simulation in terms of title, designer, number of players, subject or subjects for which game is appropriate, time needed to play game, description of game, preliminary preparation necessary, and any special recommendations. The major portion of the document consists of the 11 games and simulations printed on heavy cardboard. Examples of games are the Mississippi Riverboat Race (arithmetic), Ascent-A Mountain Climbing Simulation (reading and arithmetic), Computer Poetry (reading and English), Grassland-An Ecology Simulation (reading and science), Historical Pairs (reading and history), and Zen Deity Science Quiz (science).
