Homeschooling With Minecraft – Easy ways to make learning fun!

Here are some of the ways we have incorporated Minecraft into our learning.

Minecraft Signs

I was skeptical, but this changed everything for my son. My son has always struggled with reading and spelling. Instead of practicing or completing spelling tests, we type the words on Minecraft. It’s a lot more fun. I’m happy that he retains learnings more with this approach than when we were using the standard setting.

History Projects and Book Reports

I love using Minecraft to teach my son about history! I used to do shoe box dioramas when I was in school, now my son builds scenes from historic events or books he is reading. In our state, students will need to complete a state history project related to the Pilgrims. My son created his project in Minecraft – and it was great!

Math is Given

Area and perimeter, multiplication and complex addition – all are inherent in Minecraft builds. While I could use this to “teach math,” I have chosen to instead smile and keep it to myself. My son completes math assignments on his own now. I realized Minecraft is a real life application of the knowledge that he has gained. I’m not sure if Minecraft is for you, but I know it would be perfect for my son. He has been struggling with math concepts ever since. Minecraft is a great place to visualize the equation and solve word problems!

Biome Scavenger Hunt

My son’s favorite game is Minecraft. I love it because it teaches me about the different biomes that exist on Earth. The Plains, Desert, Forrest, and Savannah biomes are a small sample of what is in the game. I am incredibly surprised at how much my son had learned from playing Minecraft. It’s rare that an online activity can provide so much educational value and learning. Minecraft is a real gold mine for our homeschool.
