Learning Objectives

  • To practise Mathematic algorithms with a piece of paper as they travel. To learn and enhance their Mapping skills and reproduce Early Sydney and one of the First Fleet - the Scarborough.

Guiding Ideas

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.

Solve algorithms.

 

Student Activities

- 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

 

Performance Expectations

Students will complete algorithms and help recreate early Sydney using Research working collaboratively.
