Minecraft Models

Whilst sitting planning my maths for the following week my eyes absently minded found themselves staring at my children playing minecraft. I thought to myself if only children could be that into maths I would be onto a winner. It was then I knew how I was going to ensure each and every child in my class were on task for the whole week!!!!

The ideas just seemed to creep into my mind

 They herded themselves into a corner
And marched right in

 Then they were all gathered together ready to go....

It was a weeks worth of ideas teaching volume through the medium of Minecraft, with the final outcome being a paper model that they make and take home. Needless to say it went down very well!

If you want to have a go at making the models the printables are available online ...

The creeper an be found here
The pig can be found here

Everyone at our house loves this, the kids have just seen it and said "cool" and "creepers!". It looks like great fun.
