Why you'll love this

Try these unofficial Minecraft project-based learning activity where students compute the surface area and volume of geometric nets, and then can color and assemble those nets into their very own version of the character Steve and the creeper to take home! Steve is an easier activity since it involves working with whole number or decimal lengths, widths, heights. The Creeper activity involves working with fractional dimensions.

What's included?

This bundle includes 2 Minecraft-inspired activities, where students compute surface area and volume of geometric nets, and then assemble those nets into characters from the game.

  • Activity 1: Steve: Steve is one of the protagonists in Minecraft.

    • Math skills: surface area and volume of rectangular prism with whole number or decimal dimensions.

  • Activity 2: The Creeper: Creepers are fictional creatures in Minecraft. They are "hostile" mobile non-player characters that can be spawn randomly in the game.

    • Math skills: surface area and volume of rectangular prism with fractional dimensions.

What's included?

Each of the two activities includes:

  • Black & white worksheets -- more artistic lesson, students can color in!

  • Color worksheets -- faster lesson, no need to color!

  • Instructions

  • Answer key
