Developed by the Nobel Peace Centre, the Minecraft Active Citizenship Game is inspired by the Nobel Peace Prize and the lives of 4 Nobel Laureates. As students play the game, they step into the shoes of the Laureates, grapple with challenges they faced, and learn how their choices and actions impacted their lives, their communities, and ultimately, the world. We encourage you to use the lessons and design challenges 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.
Also included are classroom lessons 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.
