A student led project in which students use inspiration from an art exhibit, or pieces shows digitally to encourage thinking about how interconnected topics and the subjects they learn in school are.
Students pick one art piece from an exhibit that inspires them and chose a theme that fits the piece. They then use that theme to create their own art piece in Minecraft. Throughout the world they create this Minecraft piece in they should connect their theme to science, math, history and Language arts. These additions can be done simply by embedding a Sway with a npc or qr code. Or students can use a variety of ways including signs and npcs to make these connections.
