5 Animals with extra info for badge

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Using footprint data from Nikki Clarke's 5 animals activity - have added food & habitat to suit Outdoors Challenge. Have used Brown Bear even though they do not live in Britain - poetic licence!


Print off copies of pictures & list of foods & habitats. Label Tracks A - horse, B - frog, C - Duck, D - Bear & E - Great Tit. if using outside laminate them - so can be re-used.


Spread pictures, footprints, habitats & lists of foods around the area to be used - we are using the woods. Give each pair/team a piece of paper & pencil or pre-printed answer sheet and ask them to find the 5 animals and then to write down what food they eat, where they live and what their tracks look like.
If done outside - then would fulfil Adventure - outside activity
If done in groups - then can appoint a child as group leader to fulfil Teamwork - lead
If done in pairs - then one can act as a friend - to fulfil Teamwork - friend
