The Ant and the Grasshopper

We read a book about the Ant and the Grasshopper. After this we looked on YouTube and found a very old Walt Disney video and this really short one.
We had a think about what the ant and the grasshopper were like. These are our ideas....

The grasshopper was a lot more responsible after winter! S.B
