Spatial Navigation

In this activity, there are multiple Minecraft adventures. In each adventure, students need to solve series of puzzles using code to achieve different goals. The primary learning goal is to understand what "coding" is and to identify key computer science vocabulary. This lesson works well for any students old enough to read (ages 6+). Younger learners will probably not finish the tutorial but will have lots of fun working through the puzzles for an hour. High school students will mostly complete the tutorial and have some time to play on the free play level at the end. Hence, for younger students, it is recommended to break the class into pairs, and for older students, it is recommended to work independently on tutorials.
