Using Minecraft to Practice Volume

Any time I can connect learning to something my students already like, student engagement immediately goes way up. This activity lets students practice their volume skills by finding the volume of the creeper. Apparently, there are people who have actually taken the time to find the equivalent length of a Minecraft block in real life. I used this as the basis for my measurements, but adapted them slightly to make the task more doable. This link will take you to the Google Slides I created. It is VIEW ONLY, so you will need to click “FILE” and then “MAKE A COPY.” This will give you your own editable copy to adapt for use in your classroom. I’d love to see what adaptations you make!
