Wise Ants Printable Book from www.daniellesplace.com

 

This story is based on Proverbs 6:6-8, "Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest." It goes with the Bible lesson "Consider the Ants" on The Resource Room and in the ABC, I Believe Lessons for home school.

Ants go left and ants go right.
They work hard all day and night.
Ants go up and ants go down.
They do their work without a frown.
Ants go to and and go fro,
Working together all in a row.
Ants go east and ants go west.
They always try to do their best.
Ants work hard for their size.
Learn from the ants and you'll be wise!

Pretend to be Ants

Divide your children up into groups of three to four ants: the head, the thorax, and the abdomen. The children who are the thorax and abdomen should place their hands on the shoulders of the child in front of them. Let them practice walking together saying left and right, left and right, as they go. Tell them to try to keep their feet all moving at the same time. Next, have them try marching to the Ant Chant.

 

 

Ant Chant

Left and right, left and right.
We work hard all day and night.

Left and right, left and right.
Working hard is our delight.

Left and right, left and right.
We don't whine, we do it right.

Left and right, left and right.
Jesus is our guiding light.

Paper 3-D Pop-up Ant

Ant Popup Card

A Pattern for this craft is available to members on The Resource Room.

I teach a group of children ages 18 months to 3 years so basically it is a toddler class. I taught your lesson on Jesus Feeds 5000 with the ant and the fish crackers and soda crackers. I made the little baskets and put scripture in them just like your instructions. It was absolutely wonderful. The children loved Arnie the Ant and they listened and I feel they really got something out of this lesson. They all took their little baskets home with their little treats. It was a big hit and I loved preparing it for them as well as watching their excitement about the lesson. It was a little different and it added a lot to my already prepared lesson that is provided for us to teach. It was much more interesting and just made it FUN! Thank you so much.
