Bridge Building World - MESA
Mesa world with spawn site next to large ravine.
Can I build a symmetrical bridge across the ravine?
Can I justify the design and resources used?
Can I produce promotional material to advertise my bridge?
Students need to be organised into small groups (3-4) of mixed ability in terms of MineCraft. Students need to decide what type of bridge they want to build and what materials they are likely to use.
It may help to produce a sketch/plan of the bridge before going online into MC so they all know what the bridge will look like before they begin building. Teacher can reinforce Bridge vocabulary and Content Knowledge.
I can contribute to the design of our bridge.
I can help build a symmetrical bridge over the ravine.
I can explain our design and thinking.
I can describe my bridge using relevant terms, with reference to strength, appearance and safety.
Task 1 - in class/library/online - R&D
Research can be done online, in the library or looking back over recent learning.
Task 2 - on MC
Once students have spent time discussing/researching bridge types structures and designs. They can then get to work in the Minecraft Meso Biome and build their structures for the "Gold Miners" competition.
Structures must match the design and the should use the Snipping tool (+3sec Delay) or the new Camera features to collect evidence of their creations.
AFL and Feedback loops
- Mixed ability groups and Foreman role given to the group leader. Task delegation and support offered from within teams.
- 5 min Pause during construction where all groups look at each others constructions and ask them "How did you do that?" "Why did you use that?"
- Individual students asked to take pictures of parts of their constructions and add them to their portfolio.
- Feedback and pointers given through the session.
Follow up task - Students can review their learning using this template and can embed into VLE or ePortfolio.
