Economics, civics and social studies in a virtual Minecraft-type World

Class experience

Students will learn how real-world democracy works in a small town while simultaneously building it and participating as a citizen on the town council.
I have expressed written permission to use RBC materials. 
We use a public domain version of Minetest instead of Minecraft, which is better for this civics-based program for a number of reasons:
1)	We find that the mobs, invisibility, withers, potions and the like in Minecraft makes for a not-so-realistic atmosphere. Minetest works better for a civics class as it is more realistic.
2)	There are mods we put into Minetest to allow for more decorations, cars, signs and other items that makes it easier to say, design a business or decorate a home. Minecraft has mods available too but in order to run them on our server, everyone signed up for the class would have to download them all on their own computers, which is technically very challenging for many families. Minetest includes them automatically.
3)	Minetest is free which allows a lot more students to participate in the class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
We have designed our own powerpoints on various civics subjects (mentioned above) for the direct instruction portion of the class.
