Ant Tunnels

The children noticed some very busy ants in our play yard. They were fascinated by how the ants went from tunnel to tunnel following each other.

We encouraged them to use clipboards and record their observations, just like researchers in the field would. 

Afterwards Mr. Lumley introduced us to an amazing video showing how researchers create casts of old ant tunnels using ten tonnes of concrete! It was amazing! Another great way of using the internet to help support and inform our inquiries! Check it out!
