A termite mound was removed from the rafters of a nearby building in early January. On the first day of school after Christmas Break, each class at The Greenhouse took a turn studying and dissecting the mound. Prior to the ‘field work’, each class learned about termites from books borrowed from the school library.
Kindergarten, grades 1 & 2 students start their examination of the mound!
We looked at the bottom of the mound.
The kids agree that it was super hard!
We saw some termites and ants in the abandoned tunnels.
Some grade 3 students are getting ready for a closer look!
