We Have Ants!

Remember our bug trap?

What looks to be a small scouting party of ants wandered into the bug trap!  Unfortunately, I think the night was too cold for them, and when we found them they were deceased.  Syd still learned a lot from studying them, though.

First, she drew pictures of the ants on her worksheet.  Then, she counted the body parts and I wrote down her findings.

The ants were very tiny, so we had to pull out the magnifying glass to get a really good look.  Sydney was fascinated by their mandibles.

Once the weather warms up a bit more and this monsoon season we've been having is over, we'll put the bug trap back outside and see what else we can catch.
