What they teach you at school and what we learn later on in life is that the best way to learn is by observation. Nothing beats real hands-on experience to kick that grey matter into overdrive.
Take for example the common ant, did you know that:
- the average life expectancy of an ant is only 45-60 days,
- ants use their antennae for both touching and smelling,
- ants have compound eyes (i.e. eyes within eyes); and
- the abdomen of an ant contains two stomachs.
…don’t worry we didn’t know any of this either, but just imagine how much more you could learn by having your very own ant farm.
Watch your personal ant colony use their immense strength to dig tunnels, build bridges and protect their queen. See them plan, design and construct highways and subways and move mountains right before your very eyes (relatively speaking of course).
Take a peek into the ant world and educate and entertain your friends, family and colleagues for days on end with this personal ant farm.
