My children are really into Minecraft. I have to admit, I don’t understand it at all, but since it is something that they enjoy so much I’m determined to learn more about this game which keeps them occupied for so long. Here is an interesting article that I read recently by Margaret Rock. Do your children enjoy Minecraft? What are your thoughts on this game? I’d love to hear what other home/unschoolers think.

    My kids have been into the How to Train your Dragon game (http://www.schoolofdragons.com). They learn earth sciences in it and have a virtual garden which I learnt about when they came to me one day and asked if we could grow some vegetables once the weather got better. I’ve always imagined they were too young for Minecraft but now I’m going to have to reconsider. I can’t really comment on it but I will have to try!

      I don’t think my kids play that one Corinne, I’ll have to ask them, it sounds quite good! My two LOVE Minecraft though, my oldest more than my youngest, but we think it’s the creativity that appeals to her the most. She spends hours working on building houses, boats or even mazes rather than completing the aim of the game, which I think is to defeat a dragon 🙂
