Tracks and Trails

Wet and windy today so the session was held indoors. After finding about some of the animal tracks you can spot in the woods we made some plaster casts using clay. It was tricky mixing the plaster and many of us made a plaster cast of the jug first!

After a break for refreshments we went outside, split into teams and laid a trail for each team to follow using recognised tracking symbols. Then we returned to our plaster casts – had they dried? Everyone was pleased with their finished cast and many of us painted them when we got home – a red, white and blue colour scheme was very popular.
