TLF ID M020507
This is a multi-faceted resource exploring six types of New South Wales environments – desert, alpine, woodlands, rainforest, coast and town – and their plants, animals and people. Intended for children in the lower and mid-primary years and their teachers, the major part of resource consists of four open access elements. The Map presents animated images and videos of the environments, providing views of the environments by day and night, and leads to the Game - a set of six games for each environment with varying levels of difficulty and points to be earned. The Campfire gives the local Aboriginal peoples’ perspectives through videos featuring local rangers, games and quizzes. The fourth element, Wilderquest Learning, is a teachers portal and includes two 10-week learning sequences – Wildthings for years 1 and 2, and Wildtracker for years 3 and 4. Some elements of the resource, such as the Cubby, require registration. Teacher registration in Wildquest Learning enables teachers to create a private class account and register students, customise units of work, participate in forums and observe students' progress.
