When students can make connections between the things they are passionate about and skills they need to gain, learning happens! Today, so many kids of all ages are passionately interested in Minecraft, and with good reason. For as long as children have been children, they have been drawn to create. The Minecraft environment is a blank canvas of inspiration for kids and teens.

When users are mining for the tools they need to craft their imaginative scenes and worlds they are mining more than just digital blocks. They are also digging deep into their own creativity. That’s why Minecraft is the perfect writing prompt subject. To get your student builder excited about the next writing task, incorporate one or more of these Minecraft writing prompts into your school day.
