Our ants finally arrived and were were able to start our ant unit. I never would have guessed that ants could be this much fun! The kids loved them, and so did I and the other teachers!
They arrived in this little vial in the mail and they were furious because it was pretty hot in the mailbox. We had to put them in the fridge for 10 minutes before relocating them to their new home! We wrote up some observations right away.
We read this little nonfiction book that explained the life cycle of ants. I love looking at their drawings of the different stages!
We are continuing to learn about ant and frog life cycles next week. The kids can’t get enough about animals. It’s perfect prep work for research report writing.
Onto some other news:
We have 6 weeks of school left!
I finished my 5th master’s class and have 4 left to go (including the one I’m working on currently). If you ever get a chance to do your masters in a cohort, do it! It has been amazing!
