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 language and examining each of the four game modes: survival, creative, adventure, and spectator. Then, you’ll use this knowledge to venture off onto the six different quests that encourage child and adult participation.
These "gamified" labs will allow your child to earn stickers and badges as rewards as they complete quests. You'll even learn how to screencast and narrate your own videos to share with family and friends! The Unofficial Minecraft Lab for Kids provides a fun, educational gaming goals that you and your child can reach together!
