Wikijunior:Big Book of Fun Science Experiments/Guide a termite

You can make a termite bend itself to your will. All you need is a Bic pen and a termite. Put the termite on a piece of paper (careful, don't let it escape, because if it does then it'll eat your home). Then, draw lines on the paper with your Bic pen. The termite will follow the lines! You can even draw a circle and the termite will simply walk along it. If you get an ant and try this trick, the ant will go away from the lines.
