The Ant Bully

After being bullied at school and neglected at home, Lucas decides to pick on something more his size. However, the ants of the hill he chooses do not appreciate his unwarranted attack.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

After being shrunk and abducted by the insects, what does Lucas learn about the ants? What does he teach the ants about human beings? Zoc thinks that yawning is disgusting. What do the ants do that Lucas finds revolting?

How does Lucas resolve his bullying issues? Are there other ways the problem could be worked out? Is might always right?

How does the film portray Lucas’s parents, his sister and his grandmother? How do these depictions reinforce the idea of Lucas being solely responsible for his own welfare?
