Coming Soon!!!!

Filed under: Uncategorized @ 9:35 am

We have some new friends coming soon!  We have prepared a BUG BARN, in which we will raise and watch the amazing transformation of meal worms.  In addition, we also have or very own ant farm complete with a mountain in which they will tunnel.  We will investigate how to care for our harvester ants and identify the parts of an ant’s anatomy.  I will be posting pictures and Internet links as we progress through this adventure.
