PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Animal Farm Unit Plan with Activities + Informational Text

Everyone knows that students can't pay attention for more than 15 minutes at a time. Yet, most novel activities are designed for either the beginning of chapters or the end which means there are often extended periods of reading time. However, when I teach Animal Farm, I do in-chapter activities that I call "Reading Respites" which are designed to aid learning WITHIN the chapter. They also serve as nice little breaks from chapter reading so that students are better engaged. As with most of my lessons, I throw in a healthy dose of informational text with these activities but also some fun too :)

This zip file is an entire unit plan with activities for EACH chapter, 6+ informational texts, a 50 question test and more!

You will get:
1 Detailed editable unit plan cueing you when to stop and do an
attached activity
6+ Informational Texts to compliment Animal Farm
1 Animal Farm as a Utopia introduction PowerPoint and activity
1 Well-designed Prezi with embedded videos
1 Interdisciplinary Lesson (Finance)
1 Close reading
1 Speech structure comparison using I have a Dream and Old Major's speech
4 Engaging project assignment choices
2 Essay topic choices with MLA formatting help
1 Test and key with 50 multiple-choice questions that are designed to be challenging and PARRC like (editable)
1 Rubric for project grading
1 Set of writing help-sheets as an added bonus!
1 Emergency sub plan that helps students compare themes in Animal Farm to those in The Hunger Games
1 TedTalk filler/political cartoon demonstration/ speech model
1 Red Scare interactive activity
1 Set of Posters to represent the changes of the 7 commandments
