Minecraft English Review

An all purpose points game. Plug in your own grammar points and you are ready to go !

This activity is inspired by (and by that I mean completely and shamelessly ripped off from) Lucasmh's pokemon classroom blast. My students love minecraft so I thought I would re-skin the game for them.

Preparation

Go through the powerpoint and enter in your own questions/answers.

How to play

  • Put students into teams (5 or 6 at the most).
  • Janken to decide group order.
  • Let a group choose which block (number) they want to answer.
  • If the team is unable to answer the question then it is put to the other teams.
  • Once the correct answer has been given, reveal what prize is inside of the block.
  • Team with the most points at the end is the winner.

Tips/Notes/Advice

  • Click the cake in the top right corner to return to the questions screen.
  • Let teams have a starting pool of points in case they get a "- points" whilst they still have 0.
  • Make sure to have diffierent students in the teams answer each time to stop the more advanced students dominating the game.

There really isn't much more to it than that.

I rushed uploading this because it's friday and I want to leave work. I'm pretty sure the animations, slide links etc should be okay... bu please let me know if you find any problems :)

      Great stuff!! I only changed the background images so they were different depending how "deep" you dug down.

      @Danakco That is what I had planned originally (hence the grass/dirt, stone, obisidan pattern). However, I was doing this on a Friday and I was eager to get out of work on time ;D Glad you managed to switch it up and get some use out of it :D

      @takoyakiTacos I thought you might! I am the same, the minute tat clock hits $+20pm on a Friday I am a poof of smoke and a man shaped hole in the wall.
