Are you good at taking a picture in your mind, then putting it on paper? Here's a fun test for you:

Read the words from the story that describe the queen termite again:

     
The queen looks like an ant with a cocoon extending from her thorax.  But, this cocoon is actually a mammoth egg sack.  It's about four inches long, one inch wide, and filled with a milky mucous substance from which she produces thousands of termite larvae.  In fact, her egg sac is so heavy, she can't even move.

Can you picture the queen termite in your mind? Draw what you think the queen termite looks like, then click forward (below) to see if you were close to the real thing.
