Stout Woods Nature Preserve
Welcome! Virtual Trail Information Educational Activities

Grade 4-5 Pre-Visit Activity
Tracking Down Wildlife!

Information about animal tracks and what they can tell us about wildlife in the area introduces this activity. Each student will research and create a booklet containing a set of tracks, which can be used to identify animal tracks spotted anywhere. These booklets can be taken on field trips to natural areas, used around the student's homes, and even used in the "Searching For Signs" activity.

This Activity Includes:

  • A program planning page
  • A ready-to-print & copy "Notes on Attracting Wildlife" handout - listing several activities/projects, along with descriptions on why each method is important/usually successful.
