Two BAD Ants

So We were working on problem and solution this week and read the book Two Bad Ants and identified problems and solutions.

Here is our anchor chart for this activity
After that we brain stormed other places the ants might have gone in the house. Then we discussed how if you changed the setting the the problems the ants ran into might have changed. Then the students each had a ant. They had to choose a new setting and come up with a problem that would occur in that setting. For example, in the bathroom the ant might get stuck in a toothbrush, and then someone tries to brush his or her teeth. I ruled out anything to do with the toilet, sometimes my boys thinks of gross ideas. N-E-WAYS, they also had to come up with a solution for the problem (how the ants got out of the problem). Then they had to write about this adventure the ants had using the perspective of the ant like in the story. So instead of saying toothbrush, a toothbrush might be the equivalent of a forest. They turned out pretty cute and their stories were great. I love when they get creative!!

Hope you all have a great week!!! Thanks for reading!!
