What is technology?
Why do humans create and invent things?
What are basic needs people have to have to survive?
If technology is an extension of our own abilities, what types of tools would you need to help you survive in the wild?
Students will join a world and play on survival mode as a class. Without any tools or supplies students will need to forage for resources they can use to invent tools that will help them survive!
I will provide students with a basic overview of how to play and craft items before starting the world.
Students are expected to survive. They will need to gather as many useful resources as possible to help them invent the basic tools: Pick-ax, ax, sword, hoe,shovel. They will also need to find enough resources to design and build a shelter.
