Anchor Chart – Minecraft Main Idea

Minecraft Main Idea Anchor Chart FTW!

Minecraft Main Idea Anchor Chart FTW!

The Angry Birds Cause & Effect Anchor Chart  seemed to be a big hit, so I decided to make another ‘pop culture’ one for my class.  All the kids are raving about “Minecraft,” including my son.  It’s a building game, and the goal is to mine different elements and build stuff up, but beware the monsters, for they’ll tear down your structure!

Anyway, what better way to get a Main Idea (idea) across but to use Minecraft?  I was even clever enough to put some puns in there, like “craft,” “pick,” “rock,” “dig,” and “build.”

At the bottom of this post, you’ll find all the parts I used to make this anchor chart.  Unlike the Angry Birds chart, I had to do a LOT of digging for the right graphics.  Hopefully, this will save you some time.

Anchor Chart: Cause & Effect


Here’s the Cause & Effect anchor chart!

Before school began, I decided I was going to make anchor charts to go along with whatever subject in reading (and other subjects) I was working on.  One of the first ones I made was based on Angry Birds.  I saw this original idea on Pintrest (ily, Pintrest!), and put my own spin on it.  I found these great Angry Bird printables, and cut a few out to make the chart.  It turned out super-cute!


Here’s another great anchor chart I made up, based on the popular game Minecraft.  It’s for teaching Main Ideas!
