An army of ants and hungry grasshopper story, a lesson in hard work, self-discipline, and resilience.
The ants are known for their hard work, their amazing organization within their colonies and their dedication,
Our story this week highlights these qualities. So, let us go over to the story below:
A beautiful lesson from this story. Although we do not recommend not sharing or not showing compassion even when a person makes mistakes and refuse to do the right thing. We cannot help but admire these hardworking little creatures called ants.
As children get older they learn certain tasks are very important. We need them, to keep us alive. For instance, we cook, we clean, mum and dad work outside the home to get money to buy food and other things the family needs.
We also should make time to play, skip, dance, travel like the grasshopper. These are cool stuff and we all love them. The thing is, they are not as important as the tasks in the previous paragraph but they are fun things and they make us happy. When we complete the important tasks then, we can relax and enjoy the fun but not so important tasks later. If we play first we may get so excited and forget or not make room for the very important tasks and they could affect our wellbeing.
So teach your children to do their important task like school work, house chores that are age-appropriate and then play and skip afterwards.
Ants belong to a family of insects called Formicidae. There are over 10000 known species of ants. They live in little cities called colonies. And are mostly found in forests.
They are strong creatures that can carry weight up to 20 times their body weight and some species may carry up to 100 times their body weight.
They social animals with strong cooperation within their colonies. What can you learn from the ants? we learn dedication, hard work and cooperation. If we work together, we accomplish more.
