My students are fascinated by the tracks that different animals make and they love doing projects about this topic. We learn about animals and their tracks when we are studying animal adaptations and North American animals. During this science unit, we are reading the book, Hatchet by Gary Paulsen.
This pack includes 30 informational posters about these animals. The posters come in color and black and white. It also contains 30 animal track information cards and a blank set of cards, and a What am I? poster for all 30 animals. There is also a list of projects.
Projects included in this pack:
What Am I? Posters
Students write facts about the animal the track belong to and other students guess the animal based on these hints. The track goes in the center of the page with facts spread out all around it.
Animal Track Poster Reports
Create an informational poster about one animal. Include headings, illustrations, and information on the animal. Use a sheet of 12 x 18 construction paper for this report project.
Animal Track Cards
Make a set of Animal Track cards with the track on the front and information about the animal on the back. Cut the card out as one piece and then fold it in half and glue the two sides together.
Animal Track Analysis
Examine a picture of different animal tracks. Then create your own picture of different animal tracks reacting with one another and explain it.
There are 30 animals included in this pack, so each student can become an expert on one and teach the class about it.
