Description

Riverside Explorer: version 1.0 is an educational CD-ROM title published by the UK's Environment Agency and distributed free to any school that requested it. The title fits into the UK National Curriculum Key Stages 2 & 3 and contains data from a national survey of over four and a half thousand river sites in England and Wales.

In addition to the data are activities in which students can test their knowledge of riverside habitats by completing a river survey and comparing their answers with those of the professional surveyor. There are two classes of survey, starter and intermediate, and the CD allows the player/pupil to practise each in five different yet typical riverside locations. There are ten questions in the Starter Survey and eleven in the Intermediate Survey - some of them two part questions. All the answers are multiple choice and in some cases more than one answer is correct. Before answering the player / pupil has the opportunity to access helpful notes. After every question the player/pupil checks their answers with those of the professional surveyor before continuing. At the end of the survey the players environmental score for the location is compared to that of the surveyor, these results can be printed.
