Animal track printables are an interactive and fun way to educate children about different animals. These hands-on resources make learning about animals, their behaviours, and their habitats engaging and fun. We have an exciting offer for you: download a free 3-page PDF with 26 animal track cards for the letters A to Z. This is a great activity for the 1st grade and 3rd grade, but children of all ages can enjoy it!

Why Animal Track Printables?

Animal prints provide interesting facts about animals and their lives. Through the footprint, you can discern the animal’s size, its walking or running state, its direction, and sometimes what it was doing. With our free printable cards, you can turn this into a fun activity, matching the animal track card to a picture of the animal, effectively combining learning and play.

Understanding Different Animal Tracks

Each card in the printable set represents different animals, from A for Alligator to Z for Zebra. The bear, for example, represented by B, is a black bear. The print features the paw prints typical of a bear, making it easy to distinguish from others. For a more immersive experience, take these cards into the great outdoors, and let your children have much fun tracking real animals.

Not Just Animals: Bigfoot and People Tracks Too!

And it’s not all about animals! People leave tracks too! Perhaps you will even encounter a bigfoot track! It’s an excellent way to add a little extra excitement to the activity and to encourage imaginative thinking.

Activities and Games with Animal Track Cards

Apart from simply identifying animal prints, these cards can be used for a variety of fun activities and games.

Memory Games with Animal Cards

One such activity is a memory game. Print two copies of each animal track card, shuffle them, and arrange them face down. The players then take turns flipping two cards, aiming to make matching pairs. This is fun and an effective way to enhance memory and cognitive skills.

Student Book Printout

The printable can also serve as a student book printout. Cut out the cards and bind them together to create a unique, personalized animal tracking book. It’s a great way for students to compile and retain their knowledge.

Plaster Cast of Animal Tracks

Try making a plaster cast of an animal’s track for a more hands-on activity. It’s a great activity for learning, and you end up with a cool keepsake!

Interactive Animal Movement Games

Incorporate movement into learning by challenging your kids to move like the animals on the cards. For instance, they can try to stomp like a bear or stand on one foot like a flamingo. It’s a great way to burn off energy and instill the information more deeply.

Matching Animal Names to Tracks

Increase the complexity by cutting the name of the animal off the bottom of the flashcard. Can your child match the name of the animal to the correct track? It’s a fun test of their knowledge.
