HUGE Minecraft activities post! SIXTY FIVE learning activities for free!

Our recent posts about Minecraft-themed learning activities made clear that many of you are as excited about this kind of activity as I am (or that your kids and students are just as obsessed as mine are!)

So I am sharing a whole collection of FREE activities featuring a Minecraft tie-in. This is a MASSIVE post of free activities, educational activities, and overall fun. Everything in this list was free when I found it, for a total of nine articles and SIXTY FIVE links for free downloads or ideas.

Bookmark this post — I'll add to it when I find more free resources!


**NOTE: Just like with our regular app posts, we are not in control of any pricing. Pricing as FREE was verified at time of posting, but the creator/developer may change price at any time.***
