Ants

We have been reading and learning about ants and bugs this week.
Today we did some observations outside.

One -take a cracker

Two- crumble it up

Three- wait... we ended up with 3 piles. The first pile took 2 minutes and 12 seconds to have any takers. The last two piles didn't have any after 20 minutes. So we discussed the difference in spots and decided that the first was in the shade. So G gave the second pile some shade. After 30 minutes we decided to go in and do some reading for a while.


A while later the feast was on! The pile that got the first quick response was untouched.
