Ants, Ants, and More Ants!




In our class we read a story called, Two Bad Ants by Chris Van Allsburg.  He tells about an "ant adventure" as seen through the eyes of the ants.

Did you know a myrmecologist is a scientist who studies ants?  They are fascinating insects and deserve our respect.

Amazing Ant Facts...
*Ants have the largest insect brain.
*They work together as a team to build colonies, protect their tunnels, and carry heavy objects.
*Ants can lift 10-20 times their body weight! Could you?

Below are sites with lots of information for the amateur myrmecologist.
