Parcoquiz... i perché col verde sulla e
An educational game on the natural beauties of the Park
What is PARCOQUIZ? A game - A lesson - A bet
This is the only question of the game with three right answers: as a matter of fact, PARCOQUIZ is a little of all these things... let's see why.
PARCOQUIZ is above all an educational game organized like a quiz, and for this reason able to arise the curiosity of children and to enjoy them. Flora, fauna, territory, resources, ecology, are the issues considered on 26 thematic cards having on the one side the easiest questions for children from 7 to 9 years old, on the other side the questions for children from 10 to 12 years old. The search for the most appropriate pedagogical language, for the difficulty and the number of questions (60 for the youngest children and 96 for the "oldest" ones), and the adequacy of the graphics, has committed the Park Authority and it represents the attention paid by it to the subjects PARCOQUIZ is dedicated to.
PARCOQUIZ is also a lesson: the contents deal with the environmental safeguard, but also touch the reality of the Park, considering in detail the most curious aspects, the most characteristic elements... Not only an instrument for children, but also a help for the activity of the teacher: it would be great to see him under a willow in a wonderful day of spring while he is sharing the curiosities together with his pupils.
Finally, PARCOQUIZ is a bet: a bet for the Authorities which, like the Parco del Mincio, want to create a happy and positive frame around the issue of environmental safeguard, believing that an active approach directed towards young people and their exceptional potentialities might be better than prohibitions and apocalyptic arguments.
