The story is the same concept as Seven Blind Mice except it’s with ants and “something” has fallen on their ant pile. While the story is written, the object has yet to be decided, this is where the students help finish writing the story.
The teacher should get one secret object that will fall on the ant pile. Food can be funny, for example, a hamburger or candy (even the plastic type food works fine). The kids think it’s hilarious.
The students and the teachers work together to finish the story, which will be created into a mini book and a class play.
