Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Build Your Tower
Find your pond, river, lake, ect. Build a tower of stone brick where you want the fountain, then add a dispenser on the top (the dispenser should be two blocks above the water). Add a bucket of water to the dispenser.
Step 2: Commands
Give yourself 1 command block ( /give @p 137 1 ), and 1 chain command block ( /give @p 211 1 ).
Now press [F3] and look at the block under the dispenser. Write down the "Looking At" coordinates.
Now go to land and place the command blocks as picture 3-4 show.
(Picture 5)Write into your classic command block the following: setblock <block coords> redstone_block
(Picture 6)Write into your chain command block the following: setblock <block coords> stonebrick
Now add a button before the classic command block (picture 7).
Step 3: Hide Command Block (Optional)
Now we will put the command blocks underground. If you're fine with them not hidden then skip this step.
Now to move our command blocks,
[Ctrl] + [Shift] + [Middle Mouse] on each command block (Picture 1). Now check your inventory, if you hover over the command blocks there should be purple text saying "+NBT", if so, you did it right.
Now Dig a hole according to Picture 2 where you want the button to control your fountain.
Next, go into the hole and place the blocks according to Picture 3.
Now will in the hole (Picture 4), and add a button.
Step 4: You're Done!
You're done! Now try it out! You're button should turn the fountain on when pressed, then when pressed again off.
