Comprised of narrative and illustrative directions and suggestions, the activities described here include the following: suggested pre-trip activities for social studies, physical education, health, mathematics, science, language arts, and art; a metric measurement sheet; a modified key to common winter animal tracks in Cortland County, New York (includes 12 illustrations and descriptions); a pre-trip orientation plan (includes a discussion of animal tracks in terms of where the animal was going, what he was feeding on, whether he was frightened, running, or walking, etc.; a survey form for recording animal tracks, and a discussion of proper clothing); a lesson involving orientation-acclimatization activities and the actual survey of animal tracks; post-trip activities in social studies, mathematics, language arts, science, and art.
