Ant Homes Under the Ground features playful activities for young children, ages three to six, that delve into many aspects of these ubiquitous and fascinating social insects. 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. A culminating cooperative logic game called 3Fill the Hill brings together knowledge the children have gained with stimulating mathematical and cooperative skills. In addition to the wealth of life science learning, the natural integration of science and math is a strength of this unit.
