Four Winds - Tracking

The weather was perfect for our Four Winds tracking lesson and activities on Thursday.   Our class learned about different kinds of animal tracks.  We had a chance to go outside and search for tracks and we found some tracks where the animal's claw prints could be seen.  The snow on the ground made the animal tracks much more visible and fun for us to find.  We even got a chance to move like different animals.  We waddled, bounded, walked and hopped like a variety of animals in Vermont do.  Students also noticed how different their own tracks looked when they ran compared to when they walked.  Thank you to our Four Winds volunteers for teaching us about tracking.  We had a great time!
