What Do They Build?

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     It is almost 7:00, and Callie has to get up. It is time to go to work. She is a carpenter. A carpenter builds things out of wood.
 
2     Today Callie will help build something very special. She and the other carpenter ants are building a nest. The nest is for Queen Cassie. Cassie will lay her eggs soon.
 
3     Queen Cassie has two thousand workers. She is the mother of all of them. Now they are big enough to work. They take care of her.
 
4     Callie puts on her overalls. She puts on her shoes and socks. She puts on a hat. She drinks some honeydew. She eats a bite of bread. Then she drinks a glass of water. It will be a long day.
 
5     Callie and the other carpenter ants are black. Some of them have a bit of red on them, too. They are only about one-fourth inch long, but they are hard workers.
