Ant Homes Under The Ground
1996. GEMS. In this guide, students learn about ant body structure, jobs, and homes by observing ants in nature and in an ant farm. They role-play ants following a scent trail and dragging food through a tunnel-like structure. A large Ant Nest poster, included with the guide, is assembled in stages to highlight tunnels, ant food, social structure, and life cycle. In addition to the wealth of life science learning, the natural integration of science and math is a strength of this unit. 116 pages, soft cover, b&w photographs and illustrations. Grades PreK-1.
