Winter Animal Tracks

Winter is the best time to see animal tracks and Snow Tracks is the perfect book to go with the activity. The story contains several animals and their adventures. As they go about their day they leave tracks and many things can be learned from the tracks. Here are a few quotes from the book.

" His tracks were gay tracks which might have been read to say: "

" His tracks met the skunk tracks."

Here are some tracks we found.

Deer Tracks

Dog Tracks

Bird Tracks

Rabbit Tracks

Not Quite Sure Tracks - Maybe Marten Tracks

What were all these animals doing?



Another book great for nature hikes is In the Snow. In this book the kids see clues like berries in the snow and balls of fur and bone, and wonder who has been there.

  3. We've been checking up on animal activities in our own yard based on tracks. My kids were quite stumped by squirrel tracks for a time because they started and stopped without connecting. They finally realized there was tree climbing involved. There is so much to learn from watching animals.
