What is Minecraft?

Minecraft is a game that can be used to explore students’ creativity and imagination.  In a multiplayer setting, it also helps teach teamwork.  Students start with nothing and by working together and helping to fuel creativity, they end up creating something exciting.

About our class

Work as a team to create a custom multi-player adventure map, that features monster spawners, hidden armor, and more. Choose to design an in-game dungeon or build a castle to explore. Use command blocks together to create this world! Learn the internal language of Minecraft and use it on yourself and others in a multiplayer server. Teleport, trap, and prank each other using a variety of different commands and command block types.

After the class

In this class, students were introduced to or expanded on their Minecraft skills as well as teamwork abilities.  They got to work creatively to come up with a challenging game map with trap doors and teleportation!  

Parent activity suggestions:

  • Ask your student to show you the map they made.  Ask them what parts they worked on, and who helped them along the way
  • Have your student continue to build and expand on their map, ask them what they might have done differently on their own and what suggestions came from other students that made their game better
  • If your student frequently uses Minecraft outside of class, see if they would like you to help them create a map of their own, now that they’ve seen the advantages of collaboration!
