Rules and Laws
11. Laws are rules which apply to all people in a community and describe the ways people are expected to behave. Laws promote order and security, provide public services and protect the rights of individuals in the local community.
After students have had some experience in Minecraft they can be split into different groups. Each group should find a place to build their own community in the same world. They will need to draft rules or laws for their communities. They can add to the rules and laws as they begin to establish their communities and different events occur. The different communities are okay to have different rules and laws than others because they can be compared. Discussions can pertain to why certain communities need different rules (i.e. a student in one community likes to know down others homes) and so one community needed to make rules and law prohibiting this action.
