What is the Nature Trackers Club?
Dinosaur Train Nature Trackers Club is a community of young children, their families and educators committed to learning about nature and doing good things for their environment. Nature Trackers enjoy exploring and having adventures, respecting their environment, collecting things, tracking and observing plants and animals, and challenging themselves to get outside and make discoveries every day. We post new Nature Trackers Challenges monthly – sign up for our e-newsletter (above) to get them sent right to you inbox!
How do I become a Nature Tracker?
Buddy, Tiny, Shiny and Don formed a Nature Trackers Club and you can join too! Print out the Nature Trackers Guide Book to get started. All you need to do is complete a Nature Trackers Challenge, and you’re on your way! And to receive your official Nature Trackers token, complete all four challenges and mail in the membership form included in the Guide Book.* You can also print out your own Nature Trackers Club sign to mark your clubhouse!
And remember, the first rule of the Nature Trackers club is to have fun!
*Offer good while supplies last.
This Month’s Challenge
Click here to print May’s “Shadow Show” Challenge! When light shines down on something, two things can happen. The light can shine through something, and that means that the object is transparent, like a piece of glass. But sometimes light shines down on something it cannot pass though, and that means the object is opaque, like a box or even your hand. When light cannot pass through an object it forms a shadow and a shadow is the solid outline of an object that blocks the light.
Check back monthly for new challenges. Or sign up for our e-newsletter (above) to receive the monthly challenges by email!
