Animal Tracks – Cards and Activities

When my kids were younger, they loved hunting for various animal tracks along the creek that runs through our backyard. I made some Animal Track Activities for the kids when they were studying animals.

This is just one of the activities in our 100+ page Animal Unit. 🙂

Animal Track Activities - Animal Unit

My kids – and especially my girls, loved studying animals through the years, so this Animal Unit has a wide variety of activities! Below are some of the other activities in the Animal Packet:

After covering animal tracks, you can go on to study animal homes and shelters:

Earlier this year, I added in a mini-unit on nocturnal animals that would also work well with the Animal Track activities:

  • Types of Animal cut-and-paste activity (below)
  • “What Am I?” Identify worksheet
