PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This project was inspired from the movie Ant-Man, the Marvel super hero. Students will use the metric system, powers of 10, measurement, and communication skills to create a scale model of a GIANT ant. Students will work together to convert small metric units into larger ones using powers of 10, created parts for the model by carefully measuring, and solving problems. I included an answer key for the paper-and-pencil part of the activity. The only additional materials needed are newspapers, masking tape, and meter sticks. Students should find this activity challenging, engaging, and fun. By the end the groups should have giant ants measuring close to 1 meter from mandible to abdomen.
