- They have made an ant "hill" by bringing the sand they brought out of their tunnels and putting it on the part of the ant factory that is above the hole.
- They seem to have larva in there and sometimes we see them carrying them around. Maybe the eggs we found when we made the factory are now larva?
- If the Queen really is a queen ant, she acts differently than I thought she would. Our big ant that we suspect might be the queen wanders around. I have never seen her actually working, (the other ants always seem to be carrying something, either food, larva or dirt) so maybe she just needs to get exercise once in a while?
- Maureen at Spell Out Loud used a sensory bin to sort animals and also made a neat paper bag ant journal.
- Fairy Dust Teaching has step-by-step instructions for drawing and labeling an ant.
- Dusty, at To the Moon and Back, has some great resources for an ant unit study, including a life cycle craft and printables.
- Primary Possibilities has a Bug Observation Freebie that can be used while observing your ants.
- Erica at Erica's Ed-Ventures gives a funny account of her own experience with setting up some ant farms and also offers some ant themed freebies.
