4-6, Unit Five, Activity 3: "Tracks Along the Trail"
Students will learn to identify some common tracks encountered outdoors, discuss some survival adaptations used by animals during the winter, and piece together stories left by tracks. (This activity can be arranged as a visit to W-GIPP guided by a Park Ranger, or can be done in any relatively wild area near your school.)
Grades: 4 - 6
Some of the tracks that may be found on a winter outing are shown on the Track Maker Copy Page. Tracks can be difficult to identify at times, depending upon snow type, how old they are and temperature/snow conditions since the tracks were made. Also be alert for other types of wildlife sign including: scat, beds, chewed twig ends, gnawed-on bark, animal lodges and bank dens, hair, feathers, blood, and urine markings.
