W5 - Minecraft

This week's Kidsedchatnz is all about MINECRAFT! Yes, you read correctly, Minecraft!



So before you take part in this week's Kidsedchatnz I want you to try and complete some of the following tasks prior to the chat. If you can't complete the tasks that's fine, you will still be able to take part in the chat.

CHALLENGES


1) Create a Pick a Path adventure using Minecraft.



2) Create your very own Restaurant using Minecraft. Make sure you create a name and theme for your new restaurant.

3) Get into the Christmas spirit and build something with a Christmas theme. How about a giant Santa, a nativity scene or a xmas tree.



4) Create the letters for a word in Minecraft. Mix up the letters and challenge someone to figure out the word. For example what is this word? N C I T A R F M E



5) Recreate your local shopping mall or centre in Minecraft. Try to make it as close as possible to the original.
