This course will contextualize the concept of survival by playing in the survival mode. The players take into account resources, hunger, and tools as they build and expand their world. As the student explore, they will learn about navigation and the 3D coordinates. They learn about processing their resources, such as smelting ore to create metal. This game gives them a basic understanding of how things work, and help them analyze the different components of survival and settlement. The teacher will also facilitate discussions on traits of good teamwork.
