Spring Exhibit was two weeks ago and our theme was ants.  I finally finished putting my Ant Unit together, so I thought I would share the ant themed photos and the link to my Ant Unit.  I am so done with ants!  Unfortunately, it looks like I will have the nasty harvester ants in the gel ant farm for a while.  Click {here} to read about my ant wrangling adventures.  This new gel ant farm was so much easier to get them into.  
My very creative co-workers came up with the ideas for ant faces on the bodies and the "If I Were an Ant" writing prompts.  One of my students wrote, "If I were an ant, a candle would seem like an inferno."  
The page toppers for the "Dear Ant Bully" persuasive letters were inspired by the teachers at Peace, Love, and Kindergarten.  I have included the activity and tracers {here} for free!
