  • About Badger Trails

    Take a trip down the badger trail in this fiercely addictive science CD. Explore the world from the perspective of a badger, foraging for food, avoiding predators, and finding a den. 'See', 'hear', 'smell', and 'taste' what a badger does, and score points for successes. But be careful not to lose a life! Badger Trails is a fascinating way to develop map skills knowledge of life sciences.

    Badger Trails received the "Best Software for Kids" award from the Museum of Science in Boston.

    Badger Trails is based on the true story of a photographer who built a hidden structure outside a badger's sett (den) to observe and film badgers. At the end of the story one of the badgers is inadvertently transported miles away from its familiar territory when it is accidentally trapped inside a horse truck. When it finally manages to escape it is lost, hungry and frightened.

    Badger Trails has two parts: a Talking Story and an Adventure. The Talking Story gives an introduction to the Adventure, in which users must help the badger to find his way back to his own sett. To do this they must perform a series of tasks and overcome certain dangers.

    The Adventure picks up where the story finishes. At the outset, the badger is a long way from home and needs to find his way back to his own sett. To do this, he has to perform a series of tasks:

    1. Find three different foods and fresh water (while avoiding danger), before finding somewhere to cross the road safely.

    2. Find somewhere safe to sleep during the day.

    3. The following evening, find his way to the orchard before finding two more meals and a drink.

    4. Finally, find his own sett, while avoiding other badger setts and getting rid of fleas, which are causing irritation.

    Users have access to information about badgers to assist their decision-making during the adventure. They also have an on-screen map and BPS (Badger Positioning System) so that they can see where they are at any time.

    Badger Trails can be successfully used to initiate exploration, and extend knowledge and skills, in a myriad of curriculum areas: developing literacy skills; the study of science life processes; and the study of geographical mapping and compass work. The adventure requires students to make decisions and to answer ‘What if?’ type questions. The active style of learning required also encourages the use of thinking and planning skills.

    'About BodyWise

    Enliven health and science curriculums with this impressive and totally interactive program. Bodywise presents a vast quantity of information about the human body in a concise, comprehensive way. Excellent animations and graphics let students investigate body systems, health education topics, and frequently asked questions about the human body. Easy to navigate, students simply click to zoom in on body systems, read informative text, or get pop-up definitions of vocabulary. Click on the cross-section, magnifying glass, or animation buttons on the interface to get a more in-depth look at aspects of the nervous, circulatory, musculo-skeletal, respiratory, digestive, endocrine, excretory, and reproductive systems. Students can click to select male or female views of each system, and can switch between different skin colors. In the Health Education section, explore the following topics: Healthy Eating, Smoking, Alcohol, Drugs, Sun Sense, Exercise, Teeth, he Life Cycle. The FAQ's section contains 10 commonly asked questions, such as "How do I move?" and "How do I digest food?" Three fun activities help student consolidate their new knowledge.

    View a presentation of Bodywise:
