I decided to go a different way with this activity packet and integrate some history facts, as well as focus on language/speech.
This packet allows you to sequence the "tracks" through a photo map, as well as track the tracks with a chart throughout the book! This is great way to teach note taking to students. Showing them how to "track" information while reading a story! I've also included character cards (as usual!) to help students sequence the characters in the story, as well as use the characters to retell the story!
Now, "tracks" or "footprints" may be hard to explain, until a student sees it. This is why I've included the "All about my tracks" activity, where students will trace their own footprint, and then answer questions relating to their footprint. This can help explain how tracks are made!
Rhyming is a huge portion of this book, as well as an important early language and reading tool. So, I've included a "rhyming tracks" activity using vocabulary from the book. Use these words to talk about why and how they rhyme. Discuss rhyme families, and other words that may rhyme with them!
My last (and favorite) activity in the packet that I'll blab about to you guys is the "famous footprints" activity. Print out the pictures and corresponding answer cards and see if your kids can guess the famous footprint! Buzz Aldrin, Buddha, Celebrities, they name it! Go further and ask why these are famous, see if they can think about the origin. Even turn it into an online research project! The options are endless! :)
