19th Century Arts: Romanticism, Music, and Art

* Whiteboard required ** This activity is teacher paced

In this close look at the brutal effectiveness of predation by fire ants, a swarm of the insects overwhelm a cockroach many times their size. Even as the roach lies dying, it ejects an egg sac. But the young then face the same stinging horde. The action all takes place within a massive hobby ant farm. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.
