Check out this amazing ant colony picture by clicking this link. Okay, what do you think this picture is? Put your guesses in the comments and tell why you think your guess is correct. Don't you love working with photos like this? The discussion is going to be interesting this Friday!
Hope your field trip to the High Museum of Art was terrific! I can't wait to hear all about it.
Update: First I want to give credit to my good friend, Clarence Fisher. He is the blogger who first shared this picture on his class blog. I knew he would understand why I couldn't give credit earlier because you would have discovered the answer. Now that would have spoiled all the fun of guessing! So in Clarence's post the answer is:
This scientist poured plaster into an anthill and then dug it up to see what the inside of it looked like. You can see all of the tunnels and the chambers.
I would like to thank Mr. Powell's class for participating with us and any others that took a guess. We might just have to try this activity again! Last count we had 56 comments! We had a lot of fun!
If you have time later, you might want to read about the other amazing architects of the animal kingdom. Just follow the ant colony picture link above.
