Minecraft Element Quest

Learn to decode the symbols of some commonly encountered elements and find out how these elements are used in real life

ASE has teamed up with Minecraft to develop a learning activity for students aged 11-13 years.

Students explore key locations in the Periodic Odyssey to collect gaseous and metallic elements whilst researching their uses and properties. Students:

 - Recall the element symbols for the featured elements
 - Research the use of each element and make links to the properties of the element
 - Describe differences between how the elements are found in the Minecraft World and the real world (optional).

The Periodic Odyssey and Element Quest lesson plan were developed in partnership with ASE.
