Weeds attack!
Description: Weeds attack! is a web-based, multimedia resource with interactive learning activities aimed at preparing students to investigate a local weed of national significance. This is a hands-on project based on the Weed Warriors program. The resource models the activity of growing a bio control for bitou bush, using a games-based approach and extensive use of video. The students make their way through 16 activities gaining code words along the way. At the end of the adventure they use the code words to gain access to a certificate of success. The activities are suitable for individual or group learning, homework, whole class discussions, demonstrations or investigations. Many of the activities work well on interactive whiteboards.
