Create Green Gables in Minecraft. Obviously to correctly replicate the book's main setting you want to create a white house with green gables, with a tree outside at least one window. But how much farther can you take it? Add the barn? The brook? The grey house in the distance? The sorrel mare? The road to Mrs. Rachel Lynde's house? Go for it! Post screen shots.

Writing Assignment:

Sometimes Anne's imagination works against her, as when she let the pie burn to a crisp, or when she becomes scared of her own pretends in the "haunted wood." Write about a time when your imagination has got the best of you, either by taking time away from your tasks, or convincing you something was real when it wasn't, or making you paranoid or nervous, or anything else you've experienced. 200 words.
