My Year 7 Religion class have been working on the unit, ‘God and People in Creation’. One activity assigned to the students was to create their own ‘creation story’ using any medium they liked.
Prior to starting the task we looked at a variety of creation stories from different cultures and identified the common themes running through each. The students were asked to nclude as many of these themes as possible into their presentations.
Here is a sample of what a group of students created using the iPad and Lego.
Another pair used Minecraft to explore the task. A number of students have expressed greater interest in using Minecraft as an avenue to communicate their ideas in recent class tasks. It will be interesting to see if any decide to go down this road in the upcoming assessment task where the format is open to students to decide how best they can engage with the task.
