Student Activities

Design your character! (Unplugged Activity)

Students will design their Minecraft characters in a pixel paper. Numbers and colours in Spanish will be introduced to students so they can use the new vocabulary when designing their characters.

Bienvenidos al Mundo Minecraft!!  

Students login into Minecraft EE and start creating their Minecraft character based on their designs. Once they are done they take pictures of their character with the in-game camera. You can give students camera and portfolio with the following commands:

Camera: /give @a Camera

Portfolio: /give @a Portfolio

Hola Clase!!  

Students export their portfolio pictures and insert them in the OneNote Collaboration Space page with their name. Next to the picture of their character they have to add the following information in Spanish:

  •  Name
  •  How old they are
  •  Favourite colour
  •  Name of their pet (if they have one)
  •  Favourite food
  •  Hobbies
  •  Birthday

Human Bingo 

Distribute the human Bingo cards. In the card, they are boxes, each of them with headings. Students will have to go around the classroom asking other students questions about themselves in order to find out who meets the heading for each box. Students will write the name of the classmate if they meet the heading.
