This lesson asks students to make a poster that demonstrates connections between a famous quote, the text of Animal Farm, an example from history, and personal experience.
I have included 8 famous quotes that directly relate to Orwell's messages about humanity. When I use this lesson with my students, I have each small group of students randomly choose a quote from a bag/hat, but you can also assign each group a specific quote based on the level of difficulty.
This packet includes:
- Detailed directions
- A checklist for the criteria for success
- An exemplar (using a quote that is not included in the 8 that are assigned)
- 8 famous quotes
