Try and make sure the password is easy to remember for the child.

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 being created

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’.

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.

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.

When children achieve goals, they get orbs.

How can students use 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.

Special Lessons & Comments from Night Zookeeper Teacher

Children will receive notifications when they receive special lessons and comments from the Night Zookeeper teachers.
