Using the facts you have learnt about your chosen Scientist, your challenge is to create a Minecraft world with a scenario that your Scientist would be found in. You will then add NPC’s (Non-Player Characters) to your world that will explain facts about your Scientist.
Example scenarios could be (you may have multiple scenarios):
in a research lab where they discovered an element
a hospital where they cured a disease
in their hometown
an awards evening where they won a Nobel prize.
Create an immutable world that a visitor will drop into.
Make your world even more interesting by asking questions that they need to answer throughout the journey using a book and quill
Perhaps players need to craft, create elements r solve puzzles before they move on to another room?
Challenge players to use the camera to document their journey.
It will open the ‘Year 6 Scientist Worlds’ folder in OneDrive.
The password is birchgrove6
When the folder is open. Create folder and rename it with your name. Select your new folder and then upload your Minecraft World. You can then share and copy the url of your World and put it on your Webpage.
Matter is made of smaller parts called atoms. All natural and synthetic materials are composed of elements (individual atoms), molecules, or compounds.
Many materials have similar elemental compositions but different properties. For example most stone-like materials are composed of silicon and oxygen. Whilst living things are largely carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen.
In Minecraft, the material reducer can be used to see what elements form common materials. This is similar to real word instruments used to measure the elemental composition of materials.
Your challenge is to download the Scavenger Hunt World and open it in Minecraft. Then you need to use the material reducer to find as many materials as you can that contain oxygen!
Once you have confirmed that the Minecraft block contain oxygen, you should add the block to one of the picture frames. Once completed you can make new frames and find other elements.
