Designing our dream Minecraft house!

In our 'How the World Works' Unit of Inquiry we learnt about the 'Design Cycle'. This week, we transferred this knowledge to our Minecraft lesson to extend our understandings in our 'How We Organise Ourselves' Unit of Inquiry. First, we PLANNED and sketched our ‘Dream Minecraft House’, labelling the materials we planned to use. As well as keeping in mind that it is a volcano-and-flood-safe and strong house. Last week, our Minecraft houses suffered a volcano eruption and then a flood! Then we CREATED our designs in Minecraft. Mr Alberto taught us how to screen record while giving a tour of our houses. Afterwards, we SHARED our designs on Seesaw. Then we REFLECTED on the learning process, as well as analysed which Approaches to Learning skills we used throughout the Minecraft learning process.
