Guiding Ideas

Its good idea to make your students think about how people live without bridges and tunnels and why people needed to build so. Before starting you can suggest them to watch television series called extreme engineering : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extreme_Engineering

Student Activities

Students need to determine whether they build bridge or tunnel. Focusing on two types make them distract and may decrease the quality of product. They need to use appropriate materials to build bridge or tunnel. Excessive material usage may cause the bridge fall or collapse same for tunnel.

Performance Expectations

Students may use camera tool in Minecraft to create digital portfolio of their works and create Office Mixes that explains detailly.
