Building Organization with Minecraft - Creative Color Building
In this workshop, our expert Gamer Guides lead kids through fun Minecraft activities to improve their organizational skills.
Today’s Activity: Creative Color Building!
Through out this session we will relate the organization your child is using in minecraft with tasks they must overcome on a daily basis. For example, talking about how organizing their color room is not too different then organizing their binders or locker at school, and explaining why it is important to practice this skill for tasks in their life to come.
The LearningWorks For Kids Gamer Guides will test your child’s ability to use organization while building in creative mode with Color being the main theme.
In today’s session, your child’s ability to organize blocks and materials in minecraft will be tested as they are put through a Minecraft color based Build-a-thon!
They will each select their own building zone based on a specific color being the theme. With their color chosen they must sift through all of the materials in minecraft and fill and organize their building area with as many items as they can that correlate with that color!
This build will be in creative mode so they will have all of the tools in minecraft at their disposal. As well help from the Gamer Guides whenever needed.
We will wrap up by bouncing around to everyone’s builds and having each child explain what they used and how they organized each item in their built space, as well talk about how it ties in with their color theme.
We will wrap up the session with what they can do for homework to practice organization on their own.

The LW4K method to using video games as teaching tools relies on strategic teaching principles and our approach of “Detect, Reflect, and Connect.” The purpose of the Detect, Reflect, and Connect steps is to mold the child into an active learner who becomes aware of, engaged in, and contemplative of what she is learning. These steps can enhance motivation and concentration. They also assist in extending learning beyond a particular game or technology and connecting it to the real world.
