Hi Aisling,
Excellent scheme with some great lessons throughout. The students will need to have experienced Minecraft Education before this scheme. I would recommend introducing them to the Minecraft introduction world. we didn’t mention this world in the three days online but it has some nice features and can be a good starting point for students in Minecraft. The Idea of using Powerscourt is fantastic and I am sure it would bring a lot of engagement from students living near the area. As i have mentioed before to thers in the forum, I would suggest that you include a lesson on Group work and group skills in your preparation for this project. If the children were put into their build groups and designed a rubric/ set of rules for collaborating then this would help prepare them for the project. Well done
