  • Hoike o Haleakala curriculum: ant lessons and activies
    The Hoike o Haleakala curriculum contains specific ant-related activities for students. (Hoike o Haleakala is a multi-disciplinary, science-based environmental education curriculum designed for Maui [Hawaii] schools, but can be adapted for use in other locations.)

  • Antwatch
    Antwatch is an educational, long-term effort to monitor the Hawaiian Islands for resident alien ant species and provide an early-warning network for newly introduced species. AntWatch relies on participating schools, teachers and students to collect geographic information on these introduced ant species. This information is transmitted to and analyzed by specialists in research management agencies. The AntWatch website "hosts all of the information you will need to learn more about ants in Hawaii, including ways to study and identify them, map their locations, and submit to data to experts with the tools to do something about them."

  • School stuff/cool stuff: fire ant activities and lesson plans
    This complete integrated unit for primary grades is provided by Australia's Queensland Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries. It includes lesson plans, teaching strategies, resource sheets, teaching kits, and links to other sites containing educational materials regarding the red imported fire ant.
