The Ants Project requires students to carry out in-depth research and individual tasks within a group. Each student is assigned different tasks, and they collaborate to create the final product. This course is designed specifically for students in second to fifth grade, and it covers different standards depending on the grade level.

Students will demonstrate critical thinking and collaboration skills throughout the information-gathering portion of the project. Upon completion, the group will discuss their thoughts and write a persuasive letter detailing whether or not they think the type of ants they studied should be protected or controlled. The stance they choose must be justified with evidence-based research.

This session works in accordance with the Texas Performance Standards Project (TPSP) for The Ants Project in Primary K-5. It allows students to work with advanced content and processes through a discipline-based research model. The project is completed by a combination of group and independent research to fulfill state standards.

In this 1-hour course, you will learn:

  • How to implement The Ants Project in Project Pals
  • How to manage and delegate tasks among students
  • How to promote student collaboration
  • How to track analytics on students’ contributions
  • How to engage students with thoughtful questions and experiments
