It is notable for its use of celebrity talent and being both highly entertaining and educational. The class visits the inside of an anthill when Keesha directs a movie about social animals for the school science fair. Watching the ants at close range, the class realizes how social the ants are and how each one performs a vital job for the survival of its colony.
