Can you relate?
Head outside (or maybe even to your kitchen counter 😬) to find some ants — 👀 look in the cracks on the sidewalk, flip over a rock, or near a sweet treat dropped on the ground (or countertop).
Use the attached guide to explore and track some of the ants’ behaviors, and take special care to look for examples where you think ants might be communicating with each other. What do you think they’re saying to each other? How do you know? Are these behaviors and communications like ways people behave or communicate? How can we learn from ants to learn more about ourselves?!
