This is an Animal Track and Animal Habitat Game that I brought out for the today.
When DD saw the science center set up today, she said she wanted to do more rain forest stuff instead. We hadn’t yet played the animal tracks game (affiliate link) and this was perfect! Each player spun the spinner. Then they had to guess which animal habitat the animal lived in and had a couple of guesses to pick the proper animal tracks. I got the game on sale from Learning Resources last year. I’d give it two thumbs up (especially if you’ve been doing animal habitat studies). It fit into our unit really well!
This is called the Learning Resources Animal Tracks Activity Set (affiliate link).
There is a spinner with all the animals that you can see in the photo. DD had to find the matching picture and decide which habitat the animal belonged in. When she turned it over, she could check to see if she was right because the border around the animal tracks matched the border around the pictures.
You can also use the spinner and then try to identify the corresponding animal track.
We have the stamp Desert, Rain Forest, Ocean, and Tropical Stamp sets and the kids enjoyed using them (below is a more recent photo of those).
You can check out the Tropical Forest Animal Tracks Stamp (affiliate link) here, but I would probably not recommend getting them at their current price if you are a homeschooling family because I doubt you would get enough use out of them (even if you set them in the cupboard for several years as we did). They were marked down on a clearance sale when I got them years ago. They would be fun for a teacher working with a group of kids ages 4-8 or so.
