Tracks and Trails
In the classroom, students will be introduced to the art of tracking. Through hands-on activities, students will learn to identify tracking patterns and shapes made by animals as they travel in snow or mud. Compare your footprint to wild animals as you learn how to measure your stride.
While on a guided hike of the schoolyard or wildlife sanctuary trails, students will use the skills they learned in the classroom to decode the tracks and signs that they discover while exploring the area.
Locations: Field trip may take place in your schoolyard or any Central wildlife sanctuary
