We are excited as we finally get to start delving into our Minecraft Education experience! Students will be simulating the plight of Paleolithic humans and their constant search for basic human resources (food, water, shelter). Students will continue to migrate until they have found a permanent place to settle/farm and make a shift into the Neolithic Era.
