Source: Between the Lions: "Three More Little Pigs & The Ants and the Grasshopper"
This video segment from Between the Lions is an original, animated retelling of the classic Aesop’s fable in which a grasshopper sings and dances while the ants gather food for winter. The grasshopper then has nothing to eat once the cold weather comes. In the end, the ants invite the grasshopper inside for a meal, and they all dance a merry mambo.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
