Time Capsule SoW and Lesson Support
The Scheme of Work (SoW) provides an overarching view of the project and each Lesson Support document provides the granularity for each stage.
Learners will conduct research to produce a time capsule, including different objects, places or people, to represent a particular ‘moment in time’. This series of lessons could be adapted to suit any topic or theme. It could be based around a person, a particular place or time period. Learners will research their chosen topic and use this research to identify the key features or themes to be re-created in Minecraft: Education Edition. They will use other tools such as Office 365 to create information texts to explain their choices and can use Minecraft: Education Edition features such as signs and NPCs to link to this information. At the end of the project, learners will explore the shared world and the builds made by other groups and access the supporting information via the NPCs.
