Tracking Like a Detective

I spent my childhood in New York and Wisconsin and my favorite snow activity was to look for animal tracks. My dad and I would follow the tracks in an attempt to find the animal’s home. The snowfall in Atlanta began melting the next day, but I found some tracks nearby.

My daughter lives in an apartment in Chicago and found these tracks around her dumpster.

Ask your students or family members to make a footprint in the snow. Notice the different textures. This is also an opportunity to practice measuring.
