Queen Ant Puzzles

Puzzles are a great way for preschoolers to develop hand-eye coordination and problem solving skills. They also provide an engaging introduction to the critical thinking skills necessary for elementary school learning.

For this particular activity, we discussed the differences between a queen ant and a worker ant. We then reviewed the colors and anatomy of an ant. Lastly, we constructed our own ants using pre-made puzzle pieces.
