Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to solve problems creatively
  • Learn about ancient Egypt and pharaohs
  • Learn how to move and interact in Minecraft

Guiding Ideas

The students can play in groups of three-four members in the same world or individually.

Inside the world there is no written instructions. As a teacher you can place a NPC or a board to introduce the adventure to the students.

In the pyramid they will have to look around and try to find the clues to solve the different challenges and get to the next room (you can download the file with all the solutions to the adventure)

At the end, the students will be able to exit the pyramid and explore the desert, in case you want to continue teaching about Egypt or climate.

 

Student Activities

The students will face different challenge. In each one of them they will have to look around, to colors and patterns, trying to find the correct solution to the challenge. If they fail they won’t be able to continue the adventure, but they can try again as many times as they need. There is no punishment when they make a mistake, the only thing they are going to lose is time.

To encourage and motivate the students, the teacher can set a timer to measure the time each student or group need to complete the pyramid.

 

Performance Expectations

For each room you can ask the students to take a screenshot with their camera and create an adventure diary explaining each challenge.

Students won’t be able to skip the challenges so the teacher can see how they are doing in the world just by looking at their screen and the room the students are in.

All the mechanics in the pyramid are quite basic, they are powered by redstone (no command blocks or anything more advanced) so at the end we can ask the students to play in creative mode and worldbuilder status, to learn how it works and try to recreate one of the rooms.
