    I have my students do this book as a Lit. Study Group and they always love it. In the end, they researched the ants and had an ant farm. They educated the rest of the class on the variations of ants, poster of the body parts, and other facts. They also made snacks where they take purple grapes, put three on a toothpick. For legs they used either licorice whips or pretzels and attached with peanut butter. They also made ants on a log (celery, peanut butter, and raisins). They really enjoyed them!

    The book is about a fourth/fifth grade level. Two brothers make a bet about whether they can find anyone who eats chocolate covered ants. It is a great story about relationships with siblings and making dares. Very humorous!
