Animal tracks matching activity

This is a great matching activity by Montessori For Everyone.

We are currently in the Northern Hemisphere and noticing different animal tracks … especially in the snow. We see the elusive Chamois tracks and maybe the odd scat but no sign of the beasts themselves this year.

This activity is great to prompt discussions. Why do animals leave different prints? Do they have different shaped feet? Why? How many feet do they have? What do they have in common? They are all vertebrates. Some are birds, reptiles, mammals etc.
