Try this Ant Farm Experiment – it’s easy and makes a perfect kid science project.

The Question: Does cold or warm temperatures affect how ants move? The Experiment: Any ant farm will work for this science project. Ants can take up to 6 weeks to receive if you order a farm with a mail-in certificate for ants. We suggest ordering your farm “with Live ants now” if there is a time limit on your project.

  1. Place your ants in the Habitat when they arrive, per the directions in your kit.

  2. After 1 day, measure and record the temperature in the room and observe the ant’s movement and behavior.

  3. Put the ant farm into a refrigerator (not the freezer) for 10 minutes then remove the ant farm. Observe the ant’s movement and behavior.

Did the ants move slower if they were warm or cold? Why would that happen?

The Facts: An ant’s behavior is related to the environment temperature. Insects like ants are cold-blooded, so their body is the same temperature as the environment. Because of this they are more active during warmer times of the year. Since the food the ants eat also grows during the warmer times of the year, warm temperatures are also best for the ants. If the ants were very active before the food source was available, it would be bad for the ants!

Here’s an article about the Harvester Ants used in most Ant Farms.
