Amazing Ants: Simple Sidewalk Science Cover

Ants are an interesting and convenient introduction to science for young people who want to learn about the process of science and the design of scientific experiments, as well as those interested in biology. The author guides students through the process of developing a series of experiments with ants—one of the easiest live animals to acquire and use in a scientific setting. His instructions and explanations enable readers to understand the procedures that are the basis of the scientific method.

Amazing Ants is both an instruction book and a research notebook, and its approach aligns well with the Next Generation Science Standards. With a lifetime in science, both in research and teaching, Dr. Butler's aim is to show students that science is "a method of studying the world, rather than a collection of facts."

W. Barkley Butler is a biologist and Professor Emeritus at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Prior to that he was head of the Biochemistry Laboratory of the Michigan Cancer Foundation. He has had a lifelong fascination with nature and science.
