This week group 1 were lucky enough to have made an ant farm for our class. We constructed the plastic farm and then filled it with layers of sand and dirt. Once constructed Mrs Larsen tried to put the ants in so we could all see. Needless to say the ants were very fast and soon began to crawl all over Mrs Larsen. After school Mrs Larsen managed to get the ants in and they have already begun to set up home. If we look very closely we can see the ants moving and they have begun to venture for the food (apple) in the middle.
We are excited to see what they do next and the tunnels that they may possibly build.
