The Minecraft Peace Builders Game is inspired by the Nobel Peace Prize and the lives and accomplishments of four Nobel Laureates. Each of them has taken a different path to work for a more peaceful world, and in this game, the students will learn and be inspired to learn more about how they can work towards a better world. We encourage you to use the lessons in the way that best fits your needs. Use part of them or all of them, use them in class, or have students use them independently.
These resources were designed to accompany gameplay and enhance the learning experience. For each laureate profiled in the game, you will find a PowerPoint, a lesson plan, and student worksheets. The PowerPoint and the lessons provide students with the opportunity to learn more deeply about the work each laureate has done and have been designed to offer maximum flexibility. You may choose to place the lesson before gameplay to introduce the concepts and topics or after gameplay to reinforce the learning.
