Summary
It's easy to get lost in the wide worlds of Minecraft. Did you know that you can make, find, and trade for maps to help you find your way and study your environment? Humans have made maps for nearly as long as civilizations have existed. This book shows those historical connections with Minecraft principles and asks students to think about how maps help them learn about their environment, both in the real world and the Minecraft world.

Summary
What's the earliest-used tool you can think of? An ax? What about a shovel? Someone had to invent those first tools back in the dawn of human civilization. Gamers use them in the world of Minecraft, too. Many tools helped early people, and help people today, make the principles of physics and engineering work for them. Through learning how to create simple to complex tools in Minecraft, students will get a look at the history of tools while also gaining an essential understanding about the history of human inventiveness.
