This project is based on a historically and scientifically accurate documentary by Portuguese filmmakers and experts that uses Virtual 3D Architecture and narration to bring the two-thousand year old city of Lisbon to life. The students are using the documentary, and their teacher’s carefully designed lesson plan, to build the ancient city in a one to one scale inside a custom-made Minecraft world, as well as add all necessary information and historical elements to it. Eventually, when the world is completed, it will be shared through the Minecraft Education website both as a lesson plan and a world, so that other teachers and students from around the world can explore and study this incredible project.
At the end of this project, the students had achieved the following goals:
All of their work was made on the teacher's World on Minecraft: Education Edition.
