5 Awesome Lessons in Minecraft Education

There are few things in this world that kids love as much as they do Minecraft. A video game with endless possibilities and worlds to explore. For kids, Minecraft can be a place to express their creative side and have fun with friends. But it also provides for a space to learn new skills and ideas. And the best place to learn is in Minecraft Education. I’ve previously discussed Minecraft Education, and you can find that HERE. To quickly summarise, Minecraft Education is an alternate version of Minecraft that centers on educating children while they play. It has lessons and programs in computer science, history, math, science, and more! Minecraft Education is a spot for kids to learn important concepts through play. And it has helped thousands of kids around the world grow and thrive.

In this blog post, I want to detail a few of my favourite lessons available in Minecraft Education. I hope you can find these valuable and learn about what kids can explore while playing their favourite games!

Exploring Ancient Egypt

There’s nothing more spectacular than the wondrous world of ancient Egypt! Pyramids, the Sphinx, deserts, tombs, Pharaohs, and so much more! That era and location of the world are full of rich history, culture, and ideas. This set of lessons explores everything that ancient Egypt has to offer. Each lesson focuses on a specific topic while allowing the players to run around a recreation of Egyptian landmarks in the game world. The topics covered include its government structure, geography, the economy, and the uniqueness of Egypt’s culture, among other subjects. Your child will walk away having felt like they lived there! I highly recommend this one for those history enthusiasts out there!
