Japan SoW and Lesson Support
The Scheme of Work (SoW) provides an overarching view of the project and each Lesson Support document provides the granularity for each stage.
As the Olympic Games come to Japan, learners will research and learn more about the country. This scheme of work could be adapted to research another country to link in with class themes. Learners will use various ways to collect information. They will set up a link with learners in Japan via Flipgrid, Skype or Teams. They will ask a range of questions to find out specific information about Japanese culture and landmarks. In pairs or small groups, learners will choose a specific landmark from Japan and plan their build. They will then create the landmark using Minecraft: Education Edition. They will link to their research findings using NPCs (Non-Playing Characters). Learners will record a walkthrough of their build to share with other learners. These videos could also be shared with learners in Japan.
