The 'ants' go marching

A quiz for kids using words that contain 'ant.'

By Felice Prager / July 23, 2007



Directions: At this time of year, it is not unusual to see an ant around your home. Or, just plan a picnic, spread out your blanket, and the ants may come marching one by one, just to see if you have anything good to eat in your picnic basket. See if you can get these "ants" before they become a problem for you.
