Hi guys, since obviously Minecraft Club isn’t running at the moment, I’m going to suggest a series of challenges each week to play if you have access to Minecraft at home. The first one is a farm challenge which is one of my favourite things to do on Minecraft.

RULES:

  1. Play this on survival mode. A big part of the challenge is gathering and making resources.
  2. Think about how you could make the farm sustainable- are your crops going to last? Can you breed animals so that you can use them for food? What recipes can you make with the food you are producing?
  3. Be creative with it. You don’t need to stick to the traditional crops and animals in pens and think about how you can make it more interesting. I often dye my sheep rainbow colours!

EXTRA CHALLENGE (for Years 10 and 11): Try to identify what is a primary processing, secondary processing and tertiary processing. Think of Food and Geography lessons!! (And if you manage to identify them, keep a note of it and let me know when school goes back!)

Some ideas! Crops and animals…

Farmhouse! You could build it out of wood or stone.

Animals- as many and varied as you can!

Have fun! And share your farms with friends. If you’re in any of my clubs, take a photo of your farm (or any other Minecraft challenges) and we can compare once school goes back 🙂
