In honor of Sharing the Planet Week at Spicewood, students had the opportunity to participate in a video contest. Mr. Ortiz's fifth grade class created a one of a kind video! Their prize... a 45-minute Minecraft Session in the world Escape From Everest. The students had to work together to balance environmental concerns with the demands of technological progress. The challenge was to regreen the earth by cultivating new trees on the surface and build a signal rocket to contact the other humans who are living in space. However, these goals were in conflict; there was no coal in the world to smelt the iron so they had cut down and use some of the very trees they are trying to grow to burn as fuel. Students enjoyed the challenge!
MinecraftEdu has landed at Spicewood Elementary and the kids are beyond excited! We will be documenting our journey, highlighting our accomplishments, and reflecting on next steps. Follow us!
