This is the Minecraft world file for this lesson.
The first task for all the 5 players.
The second task for all the 5 players.
This lesson is meant for promoting empathy among children while gaming.
students need to imagine and put on someone else's shoes to understand their emotions. And they have to do the needful with kindness.
What is empathy?
Can you show some examples?
How can you empathize with people?
Before start, the teacher has to mention each student with a each hut. ( we built it for 5 players, but it can be played with 5 groups of children also)
The students have 2 tasks in this world.
Task1. They have to search and find a specific persons hut & find what they are lacking using clues. ( A diary indeed..) They need to build or create the tools they identify lacking. And go for the next task.
Task 2. In the next task, they need to return to the same village, but this time not for the same hut. But for the other hut which was modified by others in Task 1. He needs to identify Analysed whether he would be satisfied or not if he was the hut owner.
( Remember: They need to keep the diaries in the same place... like in a treasure hunt!)
After that, they can make a classroom discussion or presenting a report about the tasks among peers or with the Teacher.
The teacher can measure the development.
1. The children would understand how to empathize with other people.
2. The children would act according to the needs of other people in need.
3. They will understand the true meaning of empathy and follow it in real life.
