These challenging animal tracking cards from Acorn Naturalists are designed to naturally engage students in inquiry-oriented approaches to problem solving. The cards are laid out one at a time, each card presenting a connected but new sequence of tracks and provides data for speculation on what might be occurring based on the track patterns. Students learn to observe, form hypotheses, analyze data, refine hypotheses, and develop conclusions about what the track patterns suggest. These animal tracking cards include complete directions and questions of varying difficulty. Perfect supplement to inquiry-oriented Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) programs and curricula. Each 6" x 9" card set is printed locally on recycled paper. Tracking cards also offer suggestions for teaching introductory, intermediate and advanced field tracking concepts to students ages 8 to adult.
