Curriculum links

There is no shortage of ways to associate a Minecraft adventure map with the program. Teachers can create an adventure map to help students explore a topic they are learning in class. Example, create a map to study how people adapt to their environment, the effects of a natural disaster, or how to study their history and culture. When students create their own adventure map, they are intrinsically involve in storytelling, coding, and inquiry-base learning.

materials

  • Minecraft: Java Edition – Download Minecraft
  • A computer with a keyboard and mouse
  • An example of an adventure card
  • List of belongings that can be/summon [ed] and / give [n] (for / summon you to need a list of entities in Minecraft)
  • Cheat sheet written on whiteboard or graph paper

Non-IT activity

Plan your adventure map

  • Find sample adventure cards for students to consider a variety of options for their cards. (See additional resources for websites with examples)
  • Teachers can choose a theme for students to create their map around.
  • Think of some adventure game ideas and write them downcast on a whiteboard or flipchart.
  • Have students work in sets to design their adventure cards on paper and write a story for their adventure. You have 5 to 10 minutes to plan your adventure map.
  • Let each team share their idea for an adventure map with the rest of the group.
  • Students can benefit from the coordinate game where they learn about the X and Y coordinates. It is an essential part of using commands with sprites. However, the differences in Minecraft are:
  • Entities (all moving objects in Minecraft) are similar to sprites.
  • There is another “Z” coordinate (north/south), and the “Y” coordinate corresponds to the altitude (instead of north/south).

IT activity

How to make an adventure map in Minecraft

  • If students are unfamiliar with Minecraft, start with some basic building techniques and experiment with the following commands:
  • Redstone command blocks and repeaters.
  • I give orders.
  • / Summoning orders.
  • Now have the students use these commands to begin creating their map. Allow sufficient time for one-on-one support to help students answer their questions.
