Learning the skills in Minecraft. Understand how Sydney was different in the early years of First Contacts.
Work together collaboratively as a class to produce the items needed in Sydney Cove.
- Build a bridge to get to the Scarborough
- Build one of the boats from the first fleet (the Scarborough is already there)
- Practise algorithms
- Create Avatars that are characters from Early Sydney
- They will have to find the Scarborough themselves
- Learn about early Sydney
Students will complete algorithms and help recreate early Sydney using Research working collaboratively.
