Challenge Let the Games Begin!
Challenge PDF document that provides the granularity for the steps of the Challenge
In this Challenge learners will work creatively to invent a new sport which could be played in the Olympics. They will research and compare current sports and where they are played. Then create a list of what they will need to consider e.g. rules, scoring, and equipment. Learners will then design a venue for their sport to be played in and create this using Minecraft: Education Edition. They will then make use of Minecraft: Education Edition features such as the chalkboard and NPCs (Non-Playing Characters) to share information about their sport, including instructions about how to play.
The Challenge is made up of three distinct steps that will take approx. 3 hrs.
