The Tutorial

Next children will get to create their own unique Night Zookeeper avatar. This will be displayed next to all the pieces of writing they produce. It can be edited later.

Avatar Creation

Once completed children will then arrive at the main menu, where they can launch all the different activities on nightzookeeper.com. First ask them to click ‘Your Zoo’.

Welcome Video

Here they’ll be challenged to create their first magical animal to live in their Night Zoo. They’ll answer questions about it, give it a name and write their first animal report.

Animal Report

They will be given goals to try and achieve in their writing, such as writing a certain number of words, adjectives, verbs, paragraphs etc. The website automatically assesses the writing to determine if children achieve the goals. The goals are different based on the age of the student.

Goals

When children achieve goals, they get orbs.

Orbs are points that children can use in the Night Zoo to collect other animals and to customize their own animals in the shop.
