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 explore new areas of the map, collect other animals, and power up their animals. They’ll need strong animals to defeat monsters that appear on the Night Zoo map, so children will need to continue completing all the writing challenges to grow their Zoo.

Special Lessons & Comments from Night Zookeeper Teacher

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