Learning Objectives

  • Read a real paper book
  • Be able to summarize the plot
  • Motivate why we recommend the book
  • Read the reasons of the other pupils
  • Choose the next book to read
  • Summarized in the form of pixel art the unique aspects of the book

Guiding Ideas

Kids are invited to read a book and then motivate why that book is recommended and should be read.

Kids are invited also to choose their next book and invited to be clear up any doubts.

 

The idea is taken by a great Minecraft project created by Australian educator Lee Hewes.

Student Activities

The goal of this world is to enable students to recommend the reading of books that they have found interesting.

They must write why recommend a particular book, how they discovered that book, what they liked, what that book has taught them and everything they want so that other young people can find the necessary motivation to start reading.

They should also build in the form of pixel art the main characters, ones that have aroused most interest or the locations where the story took place.

Performance Expectations

Kids are motivated to share their preferred books and invited to read others proposed by the class
