Tracks and Traces grades 6-8

Students will enjoy an interactive indoor lesson about animal track patterns and as well as an outdoor exploration of our trails during this two hour program. Learn how the physical characteristics of body shape, leg length and foot type determine each animal's track pattern and apply this knowledge to solve track mysteries. Explore the forest trails and meadow edge for the signs animals leave behind and discover how chew marks, burrows and scat are used to identify an animal!
Significant savings are offered when you select a second program to create a full-day of hands-on learning at Moose Hill. This program combines well with Habitat Hunt, Native American Life, Trees are Terrific, Rock On or Maple Sugaring. Because of our large trail system and full-day option, we can serve up to 130 students for many programs. We provide a ratio of one Moose Hill teacher-naturalist to 12 to 14 students.
