The curriculum mentor should begin by facilitating a brainstorming session to generate the concepts about ants that children can learn more about. Avoid introducing activities at this stage, and redirect team members who start with activities, materials, or experiences. Focus on the science concepts that support an understanding of ants. Use Director’s Resource 11-1 to record your concepts. Note that several concepts have been done for you. If the Internet is available, look up ants to add to the team’s content knowledge; if not, take time after class to do some research. What new information did you learn that would have made your concept planner more complete?
