Website helps kids access the outdoors responsibly
Published 2 November 2012
The New Zealand Walking Access Commission has developed an online learning environment called Both Sides of the Fence to help teachers engage and educate students about accessing the outdoors responsibly and the value of outdoor access.
Launched at Northland School in Wellington today, Both Sides of the Fence (www.bothsidesofthefence.org.nz)Â is a free, enquiry-based, digital resource for primary and intermediate school students aged 8-13 years, and their teachers.Â
