Teacher Directions: This project was designed as an enrichment project for students after they have a solid understanding of area, perimeter and volume. This project requires critical thinking, reasoning skills, and creativity.
This project requires students to create a model of a Minecraft Map and then calculate the area, perimeter, and volume of the elements in their map. Students will also need to create a key for their map.
The next slide has student directions that include an overview of the project and a list of required elements that students will need to plan for and include on their map. These requirements ensure that students have to plan and think critically when creating their map.
There is a page included for the rough draft of their map that can be printed, or students can use graph paper to draw their draft. There is also a page that shows them how to make a net for a three dimensional figure to use in their final draft.
A page for the map key and a rubric are also provided.
There is also a link to a Google Slides version included if you want to edit the student requirements or make this a digital assignment.
