Bored? Flip Over a Rock
We were getting a little antsy while doing homework, so we took a quick break. We stepped outside and did some exploring right in front of our house.
My son flipped over a few rocks. The first rock revealed some teeny tiny snails.
Rock #2 – Ants
The second rock we flipped over was a bit of a shocker. We weren’t expecting to find a lively crowd of ants, citronella ants as it turns out.
I did some research and learned that the winged ants are not actually exclusively female. The winged ants are called “reproductives” and can be male or female.
Next time you need a quick break, step outside and see what you can spot in front of your home.
