How I Use It
Used this with my third graders when discussing geography. They were able to see how buildings are made from the earth in a fun, interactive way.
My Take
This is a great tool because it gets the kids super involved and excited about their learning. The teacher can create worlds on minecraft that pertain to the subject at hand. The class can enter the world and move through it at their own pace. Great for a blended lesson plan.
