Ants

  1. 1. Us and the Ants. By Kiri
  2. 2. Amount of ants. • It has been estimated (no-one has counted them) that there are 168000 ants for every human being living on the earth.
  3. 3. Ants in the class. • There is 21 people in our class I have to work out that if these 21 people were made up of ants how many ants would be in our class. • I worked out that there would be 3528000 ants in our class. Which is also 10.584kgs.
  4. 4. Ants in our school. • I estimated that there would be about 45864000 ants compared to humans at our school. • There is 293 students at our school. I am going to times this by 168000. The answer is 49224000. • My estimate was not on the dot but it was pretty close.
  5. 5. Facts on ants. • Ants are one of the most successful species of earth because of how many species the are. There are actually about 20000 different species. • The depth of a average sized nest is about 7 meters high. There is usually about 100 chambers in a nest and is about 5000 ants in an average sized
  6. 6. More facts on ants. • If there are about 100 chambers and 5000 ants there will be about 50 ants to every chamber. • Ants are drawn the the sweet stuff in your food such as jam. When ants are not eating the sweets that humans leave laying around they eat honeydew. • Honeydew is formed by other insects and what the eat, it’s the surgery substance in the plants they eat.
  7. 7. Some pictures
  8. 8. Conclusion. • I think that there is way(!!!!) to many ants in this world i guess they need to be here for our life to run smoothly. • They are very interesting insects to study but most people are repelled because the are small and very fast (and they feel funny on your skin.)
