Building Organization Skills With Minecraft: Scavenger Hunt
In this workshop, we will use the premise of a Minecraft scavenger hunt to practice organization skills.
Today’s Activity: Scavenger Hunt
For this session your children will be practicing organization skills while preparing for and embarking on a scavenger hunt! We will start with the basics, what is organization? How can it be used? Then the basics of scavenger hunts and how to locate and claim items.
We will then separate into groups and each child will be tasked with developing a scavenger list based around a theme (items that are green, food, hard to break, etc.). Students will then have the opportunity to search for the items on their list, the items on a friends list, or organize a group teamwork plan to hunt for all the items selected. Our gamer – guides will observe, help them and ask them questions to keep them thinking while they are organizing as well.
Explorers will be given a set amount of time to search. Once the time runs out and everyone will regroup and have explain their list and how successful they were finding their items. We will be asking questions like did everything go according to plan? What would you change next time? We will wrap it up by explaining how organizing an adventure like this ahead of time will help them get a better result and explain the value of organization and teamwork in everyday life.

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.
