Room 11 Minecraft Challenge
Wednesday 9th December 2015
MINECRAFT CHALLENGE
We did the Minecraft Challenge in Term 3 and it was teaching us about renewable resources. Our challenge was to build a sustainable city on creative mode with lots of stuff that we would find in a sustainable city e.g. Solar Power Stations, Power Stations, Water Wheel & more. Some of our city looked like a normal city and others looked like they had been taken to the next generation. We had worked with Finn and Deklan and obviously us 2. When it all started everyone was building the basic buildings, houses, hotels, parks and other things. On the second day everyone got serious, building Power farms, Water wheels, Food Farms, Animal Farms, Mines etc.


Here is a link to our sustainable city on YouTube:
