Step 1: Creating a World.

When you are creating a map in Minecraft make sure to select survival. This mode is for those of you that are interested in surviving. Creative is so you can build anything that you can imagine!!

Step 2: Gather Materials

Gather some wood, I would suggest about ten pieces of wood. Craft that wood into planks so you can make a pickaxe and a shovel. Then craft a crafting table. In pocket edition click on the three dots in the bottom right corner and then click the block that is brown which is a crafting table to craft things.

Step 3: Temporary House

Build a temporary home also known as a cave with a pickaxe. Make a small hole in the front of your cave so there is light.

Step 4: Nighttime.

Close off the hole you made earlier so no monsters can kill you. It will be very dark so place a bed if you have one and sleep in it, but if not you will have to wait.

Step 5: Things to Do During the Night

•craft the blocks you want to use to build an actual house later in
•place down a furnace to give your cave some lighting.

Step 6: Day, Again

Wow , that went by fast!! It is now day. Go explore or build a house. CONGRATULATIONS you have survived your first night in minecraft!! Now you have bragging rights!!
