Developing a Global Perspective for Educators

Animal Tracking

New Environmental Sustainability Lesson!
Animal Tracking by Courtney Micucci, Megan Hoferichter, Melissa MacIntye, Alyssa Doucet, Jessica Mumper & Breelyn Lancaster. Thank you to all the contributors for submitting the lesson plan. Check out this and other great resources under Teachers Resources.

Lesson Description
Students will examine fake animal scat in terms of size, shape, and contents to determine which animal it would have come from. Students will then create animal scat (using oatmeal, water, and cocoa powder) and, using an animal scat identification poster, attempt to identify which animal their classmates chose. Finally, students will attempt to match scat, tracks, and the names of animals in Algonquin to pictures of local animals (including deer, rabbits, moose, etc).

The knowledge students will gain from this activity includes some of the differences between herbivores, omnivores, and carnivores (including their diets and the flow of energy between them), aspects of digestion, and how human impact on the environment can affect animals’ eating habits. Hunting will also be discussed, including how scat and tracks can be used while hunting.
