Education Corner: TRACKS for Christmas

With Thanksgiving behind us and deer and waterfowl season winding down that can only mean Christmas gift hunting/shopping season is here! The average American is going to spend nearly $1,000 dollars on holiday gifts this year. Here at MUCC we have a much more cost-effective method on a great gift for the kids or grandchildren in your life.

A subscription to TRACKS Magazine!

Tracks Magazine is a publication supported and written by the Michigan United Conservation Clubs. This magazine focuses on the wildlife and natural resources of the great State of Michigan.

TRACKS Magazine is published for 8 months during the year. Excluding the months of June, July, August, and September.  The magazine is targeted at upper elementary school students and can be found in classrooms across the United States.  The Information in TRACKS is consistent with the classroom science standards for the state of Michigan. TRACKS highlights a different Michigan animal each month and is loaded with information about habitats, ecology, zoology, and conservation.  Aside from all of this great information about the animal, there is also a poster of the animal for each month included.

To top it off each magazine also has an activity and quiz that your children can do to learn more about the environment around them. Personally, my favorite part of TRACKS is each issue has a few animal jokes that I enjoy making my friends laugh with.

With a subscription rate of over 21,000 readers TRACKS is found in many classrooms throughout Michigan and the Great Lakes region. However, you can also subscribe to tracks as a family/individual for the price of $10 per year.

Animals we have already covered this year include the osprey, the blue racer, and December’s animal is the spring peeper.
