A Bug’s Life

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.
