***NOTE: If you have used my upper-elementary library lessons before, know that this Virtual Field Trip is not the same. It is designed so the students can play the entire game with minimal help from the teacher or librarian. The idea is to free you up to do other things while students are engaged in a self-directed, informative activity.
