to engage kids and students!

It can be taught in a variety of settings, including classrooms and clubs. The curriculum is developed in accordance with national and state Common Core Standards. Drawing upon digital game-based learning methods, the curriculum brings educational content into Minecraft to optimize creativity and learning.

This project provides a structured lesson plan that takes users through research, creation, sharing and reflection. It begins with driving questions on themes such as citizenship, civil liberties, democracy, and immigration. Students then conduct research using online and digital resources, books, oral histories and other sources, and analyze and discuss that research. They draw from their research to design their own virtual recreations of the sites using Minecraft.

From there, the possibilities are endless! Students can showcase their final products at public events, via video blogs, or in machinima animations shared online.
