The Maine Sunday Telegram wrote up a nice piece about the Hey, Little Ant Essay Challenge. The article by Ray Routhier featured Phil Hoose’s visit with the swell kids at the Friends School of Portland.
Quoted from Article:
“When I was younger, when ants would come out of their house, I would squish them,” said Darrah, 7, as her classmates listened. “It was a long time ago.”
Asked why she squished, Darrah said she thought it was “cool” at the time. But now, older and wiser, she realizes ants aren’t just tiny moving objects.
“They have homes, like we do,” she said.
