The Oregon Trail is perhaps the most beloved educational game ever made — and soon it’ll be getting a new life in schools thanks to Minecraft. A blocky rendition of The Oregon Trail is now available for Minecraft: Education Edition, a version of the game tailored specifically for classrooms. The new Oregon Trail was created by educational publishing company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and features the complete storyline from the original release, as well as a number of new activities that span everything from fine arts to STEM subjects.
If only Microsoft would release a version of Minecraft that runs on Chromebooks… But, if you want to relive Oregon Trail, the Internet Archive has you covered. Mouse control is a little wonky, but you can play it on Chromebooks.
