Using Minecraft to Learn Area and Perimeter

Students have been learning how to measure perimeter and area using both standard and non-standard units. Last week we used the game Minecraft (iPad version in creative mode) to measure perimeter and area. Students enjoyed measuring the area and perimeter of virtual floors. Afterwards, students were given the task to design their own Minecraft floor plan and measure the area and perimeter of their floor and furniture. What a fun afternoon of measuring we had!
