Games to Learn: Minecraft and Landforms (Geography)


Minecraft is a 'sandbox' game which allows students to build almost anything that takes their fancy.

During Redhill's Open Day this year, the Genius Club will be conducting a trial run to test how well Minecraft works for learning about contour lines and landforms.

They will be given a few basic slope types and landforms to reconstruct, and then be tasked with trying to identify similar slopes on Google Maps (which can display contour lines).
