Wetlands

Our Minecraft Wetlands Map, designed and created for Tullie House Museum, explores the wetlands of the United Kingdom. Wetlands are one of the most threatened landscapes in the UK, but in places such as reserves along the Solway, conservation efforts are being made to reclaim these precious eco-systems, flooding fields and recreating diverse habitats.

 

This Minecraft Map introduces six bird species. Students must engineer the most beneficial wildlife habitats for each species. A mix of tutor and peer review is used to find the most suitable landscape.

 

Tullie House museum used its own extensive collection of artifacts to support and extend the learning.
