This Minecraft build covers the concept of ratios (ratio sentences, labeling ratios, creating ratios). It can be used as an introduction, main lesson, extension or remedial work. As with the majority of my builds, teachers do NOT need any experience with Minecraft prior to this build! The PDF you purchase includes the following:
A teacher instruction sheet which contains the following sections:
Standard- Which Common Core Math standards are covered.
Length - How long the project will take.
Recommended Use- How teachers should use the activity (extension, small group, review, whole instruction, etc.)
Research - Two YouTube videos that I have created showing an example build and a 5 minute video teaching the concept of ratios using Minecraft.
Build - What students will be building!
In addition to the teacher instruction sheet, the PDF contains a student instruction sheet. Teachers looking for an extension activity can simply give the sheet to the student. Students just have to read the instructions and watch the video and they can complete the build completely independently. It is extremely easy for teachers to check to see if students are completing the build correctly (even with no Minecraft experience).
I have completed this build with 4th-7th grade students.
