Thank you For Listening
Minecraft is one of the most popular games in the WORLD!!!!
Minecraft is played by millions of people!

Any guesses?

Well here it is...
12,000,000 people play Minecraft On the pc,9,000,000 people play on xbox, and 6,000,000 people play on it on the ipad,ipod, or android, and 20,000 people buy the game daily ,3,200,000 people log on and play it each day on all of the versions,and 5 people buy the game in a second, so 27,659,254 people own the game in total!
That is ALOT of people!
But anyway...
Minecraft is a sandbox game which means that you can explore the world and it is randomly generated.
Mineraft is a very open game it is all about creating and building whatever you want but there's a twist! EVERYTHING is made from squares,Cubes and pixels nothing else.
I found two trailers that we can watch:
First one:
Second one:
Well it all started when a young boy had an amazing idea.why not make a game where you can combine combat and creativity?

So that is just what he done! he started progamming when he was only just 7 using his dads computer. He produced his first game (a text-adventure) at the age of eight, with the help of type-in programs. In 2005 he started working as a game developer for King.com, which he left in 2009 to work as a programmer at Jalbum.
After Minecraft sales grew he moved from full-time to half-time At Jalbum and then eventually left to focus full-time on Minecraft so he moved to a company called Mojang.In June 2010, he found out that many of the Mojang employees were also ex-Jalbum employees. Outside of work he frequently takes part in competitions, including Ludum Dare, LD12 and the Java 4K game programming contest.He lived in Denmark before he moved to Sweden with his parents and went to school there.

In Schools!?
Teachers all over the world are now using Minecraft for teaching pupils in schools Because of some of the following reasons.....

The names of items in the inventory are a great place to start teaching children to read, since each item has a tooltip and image which go together. For older children, reading the wiki and online guides can extend their skills.
In Schools?!

Players can use the book and quill within the game to keep a log, or to communicate information to other players. By contributing to the Minecraft wiki, older children learn to write informational texts in a collaborative, multimedia environment.

The crafting system can help in teaching basic math (e.g. "I need 3 sugar cane for paper), which transitions to multiplication (I need 3 Paper and 1 leather for a book Etc if players want to create a fully powered beacon, they will need to mathematically calculate amounts of materials (iron, diamond, emerald, gold) they need to create one, which means(9+25+49+81)×9 = 1476 = 23×64+4= 23 stacks and 4 pieces of materials. This shows not only you need math very much in Minecraft, but you also practice and possibly learn some mathematic skills.
With the preparation of some redstone circuitry, experimenting with note blocks can teach children about notes, octaves and chords.
Via the options menu, children can select various languages to use while playing Minecraft. If a child can name an item by sight, there is a higher chance that the child will be able to at comprehend at least a few words of a new language very quickly.
Social skills-
By setting up a private server, parents can provide a safe environment for children to interact with friends and make playing Minecraft a cooperative event. Using a local area network will allow children to play in the same room or same WI-FI network with their friends. A phone call, or the in-game text chat, they can talk together. These methods allows children to work together to build, explore, and learn as they develop their social skills, especially teamwork.
By now you may be thinking that Minecraft is a bit boring but have a look at some of these amazing buildings and creations that people have made And you will get very inspired!
