Example student work
Project overview video
Throughout the project, students followed the objectives checklist that was provided right at the start, while researching and completing small tasks regarding each of the objectives (watching a video, taking notes, answering orientated questions, etc.).
One of the main ideas was avoiding the misconception that cells are "flat"; Minecraft gave them the opportunity to fully recreate a 3D model and label the most important organelles.
Here is an example of a groups' work.
It was not a requirement that the final product was done using Minecraft; all students should recreate a model using the platform / materials they felt most comfortable with. An overview of the project can be seen here.
