Description

This world is very open ended with plots and a library. The library bookcases will need the names changed to your students. 

This is a brief overview of the task set for my year 5 class:

Students select a site in Grafton that is significant to them. They redesign and build their site in MinecraftEdu incorporating sustainable environmental practices.  Students will also identify features of the ​local environment and how these influence the​ community.

·        

Students​ use maths​ skills​ in​ area, measurement​ and​ mapping;​ Science​ and​ Technology​ skills​ to​ plan​​ and​ build​​ sustainably;​ English​ skills​ to​ document​ their​ work​ through​ multimedia​ and​ modal​ forms​ i.e. publish in the virtual library
