Lately in humanities class, we are doing project on minecraft. Minecraft is a sandbox indie game originally created by a Swedish Programmer Markus “Notch” Persson and later developed and published by Mojang. Check this page if you want to know about minecraft go to this link WIKIPEDIA. In this project we made a house in one of the biomes. I chose Tundra.
Before we made a house we answered these questions,
1. Find two other sources (Factmonster or School.eb might be good) and write down facts about the biome.
Arctic Tundra is a world youngest biome.It was formed 10,000 years ago and Tundra comes from the Finnish word “tunturia”, which means a barren land.
2.Define the biome and its climate. What makes it different from other biomes?
Tundra’s climate is less than 45˚from 50˚F but in winter it is about 20˚to 30˚F.
3.Describe the biome plant and animal life. How have the plants and animals adapted to fit the biome?
In Tundra there is a animal called polar fox and White plant. In Tundra there is a plant called Calliergon. I think these plants and animals really fits with this biome.
4.Find 5-10 pictures of the biome. Insert them here.
When I made a house in minecraft I made it with bricks. In tundra they usually make a house with bricks and wood, so I made it with a brick.
This is the picture
I think I did a pretty good job on making a house and I really enjoyed doing this project.
