takes ant farms to a whole new level
While the name is misleading (my students thought the ANTS would be rainbow colored), the idea is terrific for showing several different science ideas. Putting in layers of sand illustrates the law of superposition (that things at the bottom went down first). The ants then build tunnels that dislocate the sand--a great model of erosion. Plus the fun of watching the little creatures working hard. I have my students make brief observations in their journals every few days, and we are taking photos every day and we'll string them together into a slideshow later this semester to show the process over time. Great for home too!
Good Concept, Poor Visibility
I was really excited to order this for my daughter and myself. We already had one of the "antworks" kits (with the clear gel), and loved it. I decided to use Amazon to purchase another, and saw this rainbow ant farm because it looked awesome. I knew the material on the inside was not transparent, but i figured the ants tunnels would still be visible through the plastic. Either my ants are terrible at digging tunnels, or this is bad material for an ant farm. My ant-farm has been pretty disappointing, because what is the point if you can't see what the ants are doing. I recommend buying the other kit made by the same company "Antworks" with the clear gel.
Make sure you know where you are going to get your ants from before you purchase an ant-farm. Especially in the winter.
