New grade 4 standards-aligned math activities

As promised, our team has released an additional 31 lessons and 18 new worlds to cover all of the grade 4 Common Core math standards!

Download the alignment guide for a complete list of applicable standards along with links and descriptions of Minecraft activities that focus on each objective. (Hint: Control+F, or Command+F on a Mac, is the perfect tool to help you search for a specific standard or math topic.) Educators can also access these lessons and worlds for free at any time via our math subject kit. Learn about our grade 3 activities here.
