Description

Little Learning Labs: Unofficial Minecraft for Kids—an abridged paperback edition of Unofficial Minecraft Lab for Kids—offers a variety of creative exercises that explore the game through fun, educational lessons.

Activities selected from an Amazon Best Kids’ Books of 2016 pick!

Balancing your child's screen time can be difficult, especially when it comes to wildly popular, open-ended video games like Minecraft. Minecraft offers players an environment focused on exploration, imagination, and creation, but its nonlinear game structure can mean spending a lot of time in the game.

You will start the book by brushing up on some common Minecraft terminology and examining the two main modes of game play: creative and survival. You’ll then use this knowledge to venture off onto the six different quests that combine out-of-game and in-game activities and encourage child and adult participation. You'll even learn how to screencast and narrate your own videos to share with family and friends.

Little Learning Labs: Unofficial Minecraft for Kids provides fun, educational gaming goals that you and your child can reach together!

The popular Little Learning Labs series (based on the larger format Lab for Kids series) features a growing list of books that share hands-on activities and projects on a wide host of topics, including art, astronomy, geology, math, and even bugs—all authored by established experts in their fields. Each lab contains a complete materials list, clear step-by-step photographs of the process, as well as finished samples. The activities are open-ended, designed to be explored over and over, often with different results. Geared toward being taught or guided by adults, they are enriching for a range of ages and skill levels. Gain firsthand knowledge on your favorite topic with Little Learning Labs.
