This resource offers a number of engaging activities in which students identify and interpret animal tracks left behind in the snow. The learning can take place in a near-by natural area, the schoolyard and the classroom.
The resource provides direct links to plenty of background information as well as the identification keys students will need for their investigations. The only requirement not included is fresh snow!
Teachers may wish to have students prepare data tables specific to the activities to be performed prior to venturing out.
In addition to providing a meaningful outdoor learning experience, the tracking activities support outcomes related to the study of biodiversity, habitats, ecosystems and animal adaptations.
