Students conduct open-ended investigations on the search patterns of pavement ants in Earth's gravity and compare them to experiments conducted in microgravity aboard the Space Station.
Activities in the Ants in Space Teacher's Guide are designed for use with multiple grade levels, and as observation for K–2 students.
