Minecraft can go far beyond the standard game, thanks to a community of creative and passionate mod developers. In this class, we will play a modded version of Minecraft, and use this as a setting for new learning and adventures!
NOTE: This class requires a Windows or Mac computer with keyboard and mouse. Ipad, Xbox, and other game systems will not work.
What You Will Learn and Do
You will join a modded Minecraft Server with the Zoo and Wild Animals Mod installed, bringing dozens of new animals and variations into the Minecraft world to meet and learn about. From lions and tigers to frogs and snakes, it will be a 'Zootopia' to explore!
Learn about how animals behave in the wild, and understand predators and prey
Find out which animals we find in different biomes and how they are adapted to live there
Discover how we are able to look after animals and what they need in zoos
Build creative animal habitats and create an amazing zoo of your own!
