Have you ever thought about how often you need to organize your Minecraft inventory? When it’s time to make a structure or finish a project, it’s hard to do when you’re not sure what you have for materials. You use organization when you are planning how you want your structure to look, too. Shaping out your builds before you start is how you create something that fits in the space you have. Organizing in Minecraft is something you do without even really thinking about it. It just needs to be done.
Organization is also one of the most important skills for doing well in school. If you can’t find your homework, you’ll never get it done. If you lose your agenda, you’ll forget when a project is due. Here’s a video about the organization thinking skill to help you understand how it works.
