Minecraft Education with The Sands Academy! 

Let’s get creative and tap into our creative thinking skills with Minecraft Education and The Sands Academy! In our small teacher-led classroom, students will work together in small groups to accomplish a build challenge together.

 

Students may be asked to build:

  • A campsite

  • A fictional creature

  • A rollercoaster

  • A pollinator garden and more!

 

Older students may be asked to solve a problem, like building a machine to collect pollution in our oceans, growing mangroves to offset carbon emissions, or even creating an accessible amusement park. The possibilities are endless!

 

Whatever we’re building, you can bet on hearing lots of giggles as your student becomes engaged in socializing with their peers in a safe, teacher-led environment.

 

Students will be given the opportunity to work on:

  • Digital Citizenship

  • Team building skills

  • Communication skills

  • Taking turns

  • Asking for help & helping others

  • Writing skills and reading skills (not a prerequisite)

 

Time: 45-60 minutes
