I'm going to bring my ants to the school where I teach (I teach HS but the presentation is for middle school) I have about 20 min or so. I plan on having some slides and discussing where ants live in NYC, how they contribute to the environment, their life cycle and how they reproduce. And showing some videos. I'm also going to bring in the carpenter ants and use a live camera to let them see inside the nest.
So here is the help I need from you...
1. If you could teach middle school kids (Ages 9 to 13) one thing about ants what would you want them to know?
2. If you were a middle school kid what fact about ants would you find most exciting?
