Ducks 'n a Row: A is for Ant

26 October 2013

A is for Ant

A is for Apple but A is also for Ant and that's what we did for my first real preschool lesson this year. It was fun!  
kids crafts, homeschool

We saw live ants building tunnels in their artificial ant hill.  We made our own ants (ant craft). We played an ant race game and we read ant books!  It was a day of preschool science, reading and fun! Here is how the day went ...
