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.

A Bug’s Life illustrates the idea of many “small” individuals coming together to overcome a much larger obstacle. With this in mind, ask your children how they can make positive changes as individuals in their communities.

A Bug’s Life is based on the Aesop’s fable about the ant and the grasshopper. You may find it interesting to check your local library for a copy of the original story, and then compare it to the movie adaptation.
