Without prompting, they added so many little touches that I was a little blown away by the creativity! There were torches, and my eldest even included inside/upstairs, where he added statues and signs. My favorite was the one below, "Upstairs tour by permission of the French government only!" Haha!
There was even an "employees only" wing with beds to that the employees could rest as needed. Obviously, they did this in creative mode, but they couldn't wait for another assignment after they did the first one! You can take screenshots of your Minecraft creations by pressing F2, then create a digital scrapbook of all of the landmarks they create! If you'd like them to record the landmarks they create or get started with some landmarks that are fairly easy to create in Minecraft, here is a free printable for you! It includes both color and blakc and white versions of the 5 landmarks included (Acropolis, Arc de Triomphe, Brandenburg Gate, Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the Statue of Liberty).
If your kids are ready for even more of a challenge, you can try a Google Image search for inspiration or try some of the following landmarks:
- Burj Khalifa
- Christ the Redeemer
- Eiffel Tower
- Pyramids of Giza
- St. Basil's Cathedral
- Sydney Opera House
- Taj Mahal
- The Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore)
- Tower Bridge
