Math with MineCraft – Bulding a city with blocks

Do you know that game? I did not until all kids in the world know about it. Minecraft is a game about placing blocks and going on adventures. Explore randomly generated worlds and build amazing things from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles. Play in Creative Mode with unlimited resources or mine deep in Survival Mode, crafting weapons and armor to fend off dangerous mobs.

Kids like it and so many of our students.

I was thinking on engaging them to the math class, link the subject, and create a fun environment in the  classroom.

OBJECTIVES: 

How is the city organized? Understanding how to build a city through math and Minecraft.

Blocs cut in 3 cm each side.

The city will be organized in blocks. (Just like the game)

LEARN ABOUT:  

Square shape

City organization

Measurement

MATERIALS

 Color and blank sheet of paper.

Your students can be freely build the city the way they want it!

Teaching students how to build their self-esteem

image

There are many students out there that need acceptance when they are among people. We surely know that parents should be teaching that, but why not teaching them, too?  Sometimes it is something really hard for students to accept the way they are. Kids don’t like to be any different of the patterns that the TV , society or magazines provide them.

 Good news, they can find it by reading. 
It is actually O.K to show them that all the differences are acceptable, but how come if the media tells us the opposite? The media must not dictate the way we think about ourselves. Many of our students do not know that truth. So teach them!


Kids must know from now on that they have to get the acceptance they need from themselves. Once they understand that they can love the way they are, they will feel that any outward characteristic is acceptable once they learn to love themselves.


Even if people tell them the opposite, they must always believe that who they are is precious. Every part of their body, thin or fat, tall or short, blond or brunette, black or white, all of them are only characteristics, and each of them have their particular way of being. They have got understand that it is ok to be different.


That truth can get into their hearts and Never Ever goes away. Educators like us can be part of that as well as parents. We spend so much time with them, why not writing the truth in their hearts that can live inside of them  forever?

The book IT IS OK TO BE DIFFERENT by Todd Parr, follow him in Facebook: Like Todd Parr, can be an open eyes to our kids. 

Of course it is always great to have an worksheet to go along our conversations.
How about writing a book with our students about that?

Science experiments: Balloon Rockets

  Curta nossa página: https://www.facebook.com/bilingualeducationactivities


Kids love balloons. Balloons are fun and frugal entertainment, there is certainly no denying that.
I always keep a stash of balloons around to pull out on days when my boys are in need of some unexpected fun. They love to play the classic “don’t let the balloon touch the floor” game.
Balloons can also be a great science tool. We used balloons to make our Marshmallow Shooters and for our Balloon Blow Up activity.
Recently, we’ve experimented with building our own model rockets and we’ve launched water rockets at our local science museum. Rockets are fascinating and a great way to teach the concept of action and reaction.
Fortunately, they can also be as simple or as complicated as you’d like. Today, simplicity was the route we took. By using a few items we had around the house, we made balloon rockets.

What you need:
Piece of yarn (cut to about 6 feet)

Balloon

2 Chairs

Drinking straw

Tape

Scissors

Start by tying one end of the string to the back of a chair…
Thread a drinking straw onto the other end of the string, and then tie the string to the second chair…
Attach 2 pieces of tape (about 2 inches in length) to the center of the straw…

 
Next, inflate a balloon (Don’t tie the end!)…

Pull the balloon to one end of the string (so that the opening of the balloon is touching one of the chairs), and let go…

Observe what happens.

The balloon should start to move as soon as you let go of it.

Action and reaction is a fairly simple concept – To make an object move one way, a force has to work in the opposite direction.

In this case, the balloon is full of air. When you let go of the balloon, causing the air to rush out of the opening, it creates a pushing force in the opposite direction. This makes the balloon move.

Real rockets work in a similar way. A rocket engine works by exploding fuel inside a chamber that is open at the bottom. The force of the explosion creates an opposite force that pushes the rocket up and into space.
