In this video, students learn about a unique, mutually-beneficial partnership between leaf cutter ants and the fungus they cultivate for food. Join the "You at the Zoo" team and use the inquiry process to make predictions and test your hypothesis about which ants travel faster – those carrying leaves, or those without. Use the Guided Viewing and Assessment to further explore the diversity and interdependence of life. With this guide, students will complete a pre and post viewing activity.
This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
