I love combining nonfiction research with math... especially if it has to do with animals!
This packet gives information on the tracks of 8 animals. There are also life-size pictures of 8 animal tracks. Students work in groups to measure (in INCHES) each track and list their characteristics. Then they determine which animal made the track. A perfect storm of nonfiction research and math inquiry!
