An idea that i think would work easily and wont take much time would be an ant farm.

Some of the Questions that you could put are

:How long does it take for a coloney of ants to find a food scource?
:What do ants eat and how do thay eat it?
:How do ants talk

I propose an experiment to test the intelligence of ants.

Create a maze for an ant--not too complicated. With one or two turns max.

Let's say your "maze" is a passage--reach a dead end, and you have to choose between the left and the right. On one side, put an ant food.

So when you place an ant there at the start. See if it can always find which side to go on. time how long it takes the ant to reach the food, or does it reach it at all?

Place the food on the same side, and using the same ant, run the maze again. See if it takes the ant less time to find the food.

There might be difficulties because ants are so small and hard to work with, but see if it is possible. Good luck!

Lightbulb Sweet or protein?

How about puting foods that are hight in protein in the farm and ones that have a lot of sugar. Tell which one they prefere.
