What is a cathedral? How were they built during medieval times? What do you know about Gothic architecture?
Research the history and the construction of Notre Dame and as well as the construction of the new roof for the cathedral.
Students roles in Minecraft:
Students can take photos with their cameras in game about the building process. They can also have a building diary in which they write down all the activities they accomplish.
Step by step project:
Students will investigate the roof of the Notre Dame cathedral looking for photos and videos about the original building.
Then they will have to research about the surrounding area of the cathedral and it’s main attractions trying to find a point of interest such as tourism, culture, inhabitants… Students will have to come up with a new roof that will address the needs of the community and this unique space. For example they may make the roof accessible for everyone, or turn it into a green area to reduce the contamination of the city.
