What is Minecraft?

Kids love Minecraft! It has become one of the most popular video games amongst children. The Minecraft game is a motivating and engaging tool that allows for limitless creativity.

The game can be described as a ‘sandbox game’ which means that it’s a virtual world that players can create their own lands and experiences within using various materials. Within the game, students get resourceful and gather building materials from their surrounding environment.
