The crafting window is where all item building in Minecraft takes place. All kinds of tools and decorations can be created by combining items in specific order. The inventory window has a small 2x2 grid that you can use to create very basic items.
A bigger crafting box, however, is needed to make any of the useful tools. By crafting a work bench, you gain access to a 3x3 grid.

Food is essential to a player's survival in Minecraft. Food when eaten restores hunger points and saturation points. A Survival Mode player must eat food items regularly, or they will begin losing health and die soon after.
Redstone is a flat transparent block which can transmit power. It is the Minecraft equivalent of electricity. It can be used to activate devices such as doors & gates, lamps, pistons, TNTs, note blocks and minecart rails.
Animals and monsters in Minecraft are known as mobs. Mobs are affected by environment the same way as the player (e.g. catch on fire, fall, drown, attack by weapons, etc).
Enchanting is a way to make magic armor, weapons
and tools. It improves an item's existing abilities. An item can be enchanted by using an enchantment table or an anvil.
