US Grade 2 - 5
***THERE ARE NO LIVE MEETINGS FOR THIS CLASS.*** In this 7 week flexible class, students will learn about each of the 7 continents and use Minecraft to extend their learning by "craft"-ing the continents! Students will learn different facts about each continent to find out what makes each large body of land so special and unique. This class will be a mix of reviewing pre-recorded videos from Miss Lisa, reading information from related websites, watching related video links, answering...
I have been playing Minecraft for years and can speak the "language". As your child creates their continent-related Minecraft build, I will offer inspiration and suggestions as needed through our weekly discussion in the classroom.
Homework OfferedEach week students will review the posted material, answer comprehension questions and complete a continent-related Minecraft build to be assigned each week. Students will share a screen shot of their Minecraft build in the classroom. This homework will require time for reviewing the videos, reading posted content, completing the comprehension questions and completing the build. Depending on your child's reading level and time spent to complete the questions and the Minecraft build, homework can take anywhere from 1-2 hours to complete. But, Minecraft-ing is the fun part and it won't seem like homework! (Shhh ... it might even be fun!)
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
