Ant hills are an impressive feature of the grasslands throughout the United States.
In some areas, many hundreds of these mounds form wonderful ant-created landscapes, many decades or even centuries old.
Each ant hill is the result of many lifetimes of labor by thousands of tiny ants.
Ant hills are of great ecological importance, and so we created our very own!
Using popsicle stick ants, rocks, sticks, and sand, we created our very own ant hills!
Insects and other small animals are a key part in any food chain, a subject your students will study in elementary science.
Knowing about them and having respect for insects now will help them better appreciate insects’ importance later.
