Ants, Ants, Ants

Now that we have completed our movie, we can move onto our next topic of study.  You might remember that we set up an ant observation sanctuary last month.  Since establishing the protected zone, we’ve had many question regarding the life and cuisine of ants.  Thus our next exploration takes us into the realm of the entomologist.

This morning’s message posed the question, “What questions do you have about ants?”  It was interesting to see how many of the children persisted in offering ideas (read: facts) about ants rather than positing questions.  With a bit of redirection, we gathered great starting points for our research.
