July 7, 2020 | Minecraft: Education Edition, Summer Break
Spending the summer close to home is no reason to miss out on adventures. We want to give students the chance to go on a journey of discovery no matter where they’re spending their time off from school!
Our team has assembled a new collection of nine spectacular worlds that will help you explore and learn from the comfort and safety of your own home. So grab your sack lunch, slap on some sunscreen, and fill that water bottle, because this summer we’re headed to the Minecraft: Education Edition Fantasy Adventure Camp.
Over the next nine weeks, we’ll be sharing this series of worlds that take your learners on excursions all over the globe, back through time, and even into space. They’re ideal settings for summer learning activities, creative builds, or just a place to wander and explore. Throughout July and August, follow Minecraft: Education Edition on Twitter and Facebook to see where we’re taking campers each week.
So without further ado, take a look at the adventures we’ve released so far and let your learners’ imaginations roam!
1. For our very first adventure, we’re headed back in time to Florence, Italy, to discover some of the history, culture, and architecture of this beautiful city. In the City of Florence, learners can explore famous structures like the Piazza del Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Santa Maria Novella, Campanile di Giotto, and the Ponte Vecchio. Explore this world today.
2. Arctic Adventure: In our second fantasy adventure, take a sled dog tour through the Arctic while learning about the risks and rewards of the Far North along the way. This world by Minecraft Global Mentor Benjamin Kelly invites students to explore one of the harshest and most fascinating environments on earth!
