Objective

Research has shown that positive social activities such as expressing gratitude can lead to stronger relationships, improved quality of life, and may motivate us to give back to our community. Your challenge this month is to use Minecraft as a way to creatively model gratitude. Incorporate into your subject area curriculum or as a Social Emotional Learning lesson. Close your eyes, and visualize a time another person did something to benefit you. How did it make you feel? Use Minecraft to build a scene with images and words to express this episode. Use the camera, portfolio, and book and quill to capture your work and share your thoughts about who and what you appreciate.

Extensions

  • Pair with an activity to recall acts of kindness you performed yourself.
