Task: At this station, you will look at animal tracks in a picture and tell a story of what you think happened.


  1. Look at the picture in front of you. You should see two kinds of animal tracks in the picture. Look for patterns in these tracks, they tell a story. Pretend you actually found these patterns of tracks outside.

  2. Study the picture for a few minutes. What do you think happened in this story? What kind of animals do you think made the tracks?

  3. Use the paper on the desk to write a story that tells what you think might have happened.

*** REMEMBER: Try to identify the animals that made the tracks. Write your story based upon what you observe in the picture.
