Who's the Boss of the Anthill?
Go outside and observe what ants look like and how they behave. Try to find their anthill and see what does it look like.
Talk about how an anthill functions: what are the roles of particular ants.
The students act out the role of ants from different castes, pretending to be the queen, the workers and soldiers in different situations that ants encounter.
Exchange impressions and sum up the anthill game.
How many different groups (castes) of ants are there in an anthill and what do they do?
If one ant is doing something wrong, or is working poorly, is everything still OK?
The students learn how other animals live in a group.
