Ants are one of the most fascinating creatures on the planet. They have very structured, elaborate social systems, with rituals and hierarchies, roles, and assignments. That’s why having an art farm can be very entertaining and educational – as the ant farm’s popularity as a school project proves. Ant Farms are literally a microcosm of society.
Ant farms have fascinated kids and adults for over 50 years and have become one of the most fun and educational toys for young children. There are many types of ant farms available today, which offer a different ant observing experience but the underlying principle behind every ant farm is basically the same. Ants are encased in a clear casing with enough room to move around and dig tunnels. The thin architecture of the ant farms ensures that the tunnels dug by the ants are always visible, creating a fascinating view of ant life.
