Use theAnimal Tracks Worksheet to help kids learn to recognize a few animal tracks. Talk about how different animals have different numbers of toes and different sizes and shapes of paws. Ask questions to get kids thinking about how different animals use their paws or feet to help them get food and move around. For example, a raccoon has five finger-like toes on each paw, which it uses to hold food while eating. A rabbit has long back feet for hopping and a moose has hooves with two “toes” to help it move quickly, even through snow.
