This lesson describes a term (10 weeks) of activity in an integrated digital technology class. Students were asked to design and build a game in Minecraft based on a maze framework. Within the maze players would encounter NPCs (non-player characters) who would ask them e-safety questions which, when answered correctly, would give the player resources to advance within the maze.
The unit of work combines e-safety, literacy, design thinking and digital technologies to create the Minecraft game mazes. The Grade 5 E Safety Maze Term Plan describes the weekly focus and student activity.

Students are assessed on performance at each stage of the project, as well as the final product, peer feedback and their ability to give constructive feedback. A rubric could be created from activity described in The Grade 5 E Safety Maze Term Plan.
