Ants {Science}

Bear found a pretty basic Ant Farm at the Thrift store last weekend so I told him we would be happy to buy some ants online and start a study on ants (and more broadly on insects). 

We ordered are ants from AntsAlive and they arrived much faster than I had anticipated! And at $5 for 30, you can't complain. So far they seem active and happy. I'm not sure what to expect in terms of lifespan- I guess we will find out :)

We have the Uncle Milton Green Kit.

I found some free Insect Nomenclature Cards from Montessori Materials:  
Indie seemed to enjoy these the most and picked up many of the names quickly.
