The Ant Exploration Maze
Check out bugs and see how they find food!
For this STEAM activity, we investigated ants. We formulated a hypothesis that ants form a line to collect food then bring it to their nest. This hypothesis was definitely inspired by the Disney movie "A Bugs Life". Our hypothesis actually turned out to be incorrect, but gave us an opportunity to do some research on the world wide web! We suggest you do this too and make an entire day out of this activity. The kids were very engaged and went back frequently to investigate the exploration maze.

Don't forget parents, all this learning may come with piles of artwork! But the Artebula App was designed to solve that problem without guilt. You can download it for free from the Google Play Store and the App Store.
