Summary:This book is about 100 hungry ants on the hunt for food at a picnic. In an effort to get their faster, they go 2x2,4x4, and so on. This does not help them get their any faster!Personal Reaction:I thought this book was really cute, not only did it teach about how ants go in groups, but was in a rhyming patter that kids love. Kids could anticipate what would happen next.Classroom Extensions:1. Have the students draw their own army of ants marching to a picnic, and what formation they would have them march in, and why.2. Take the students outside and have them march 2x2, 4x4, and so on to show how the ants did.

What a wonderful book for every early elementary student. My ESL students love this book as it is easy for them to understand the math concepts in this entertaining story. The rhyming is another reason why students love this book. What an excellent way to teach a lesson on, counting, simple division and multiplication.

One Hundred Hungry Ants, its a book about ants trying to get to a pinic to get some food. The littest ant holds them up because they feel that the lines have to many people inorder to get the pinic site in time. Well this does not happen and all the ant get mad. The book shows a little math when dividing the hundred ants into equal lines.

Genre: FantasyAppropriate Age: PrimaryMedia: Linocut (like woodcut, but with linoleum)Summary: In search of a picnic meal, a group of 100 ants arrange themselves in varying equal groups in order to make it to the picnic quicker. Their leader, the littlest ant, who tells them they can arrange themselves in 2 groups of 50, 4 groups of 25, 5 groups of 10, ect. All the other ants get mad at the youngest when they reach the picnic area and all the food is gone.

One hundred ants heading to a picnic to get food. They have problems getting there so come up with math groups to walk in. Great book to tie into counting by 1's, 5's and 10's.

age app: primarygenre: poetryreview: this is a good example of poetry because it has a rhythm and flow. The rhyming adds to the fun of the book as well. It is a story that incorporates math too (division).

Review: This book is a good example of fantasy because it describes the world as we know it and fantasy. It describes how a group of one hundred hungry ants decide how to get to a picnic in the fastest way possible. Level: Primary

This book is an excellent example of a fantasy picture book because it is about ants and the ants can talk and do mathematics. Ants can do neither of these things in real life.This story is about a group of 100 ants that are on their way to a picnic to steal food but they are traveling too slow so the littlest ant suggests different ways to get there quicker.Age Appropriateness: primary, intermediateMedia: Acrylic Paints
