This printable features an ant hill with various shapes inside of it! Children can match these shapes to where they belong so that the ants have all the rooms filled that they need occupied!
Anthills are made of basic earth materials like dirt and sand. Some ant hills are even made with little tree branches.
Imagine if you were to shrink down to the size of an ant. You could crawl into one of their anthills and would discover many pathways and tunnels throughout the structure! Should follow these tunnels to their ends, you would then discover many chambers and rooms–a number of them connected to each other.
These small rooms are used by ants in many ways. They can be nurseries, food storage, and even resting places for worker ants. During the day, these worker ants move the larvae (baby ants) up to the rooms closer to the top of the anthill so as to keep them warmer!
Printable Shape Matching Activity
This printable consists of two sheets. One is the anthill itself and the other printable has the shapes that make up the rooms which are used by ants in a number of ways, as discussed above. Children can cut and paste the shapes/rooms so that they go where they belong upon the anthill.
