Animal Tracks is another great app for the great outdoors. How many times has your family found a set of animal tracks in the wild and wondered about what animal might have made them? This app will walk you and your kids through a set of basic questions that will help narrow down the list of suspects until you can identify it. Full of nice photos, this app helps you identify scat and learn about the gait patterns that produce the footprints you see. This is a fun activity for nature sleuths young and old.
