Second graders learned all about ants! We went outside and used magnifying glasses to search for ant colonies and the critters that live within. Then we learned about the different parts of an ant’s body, and practiced drawing them.
Ants can carry up to 20 times their weight, and we drew pictures of ants with the entire contents of our bedrooms on their backs.
For the final project, we personified ants, and invented different rooms for these underground homes. As it turns out, some ants like to swim at the pool, while others like to get down at the disco!
