Thank you so much for compiling this list of great sites for such a teachable moment. I intend to lay aside my Science plans for one day to allow the students a chance to explore and investigate this more in-depth. I know many will have questions (5th graders) as a few have already emailed me. Thanks again.
You’ve probably come across this one:

Quite a nice insight into what needs to be done. Does take quite a long time to play though!
All the best,
