Animal Farm by George Orwell Unit Lesson Bundle (Revised and Enhanced Version)
If you haven't read Animal Farm with your class, you are missing a wonderful experience. It is an extraordinarily touching novel which my kids really loved. I also consider the Animal Unit Plan to be one of the best I have ever done. I have incorporated a variety of activities which I think are quite different from those you will find elsewhere.
In the Animal Farm Unit Bundle, you will find over 130 pages of activities and answer sheets which include:
1) Questions and Quotes from all chapters with answer key. Students answer questions and analyze the significance of quotes
2. Several 32-35 question chapter scavenger hunts which are always a hit with my high school kids. Answer sheets are included.
3) A Character Chart which analyzes each significant character's personality and habits.
4) Vocabulary activities for each chapter. The most popular is called, "Word Detective," where students act as vocabulary sleuths as they determine the meaning of new words. First they use contextual clues to determine the meaning of new words from context in passages from the story. Then they use a thesaurus or dictionary to check comprehension, find synonyms, and determine parts of speech for each word.
5) Power points, graphic organizers and worksheets for
a) Propaganda identification and analysis
b) The Seven Commandments-How they were changed and violated
c) Important Quotes Power Point
6) Graphic Organizers and worksheets for
a) Character identification and analysis (Chapter 1)
b) Tracking different animal reading and work (Chapter 2)
c) The Battle of Cowshed Battle Strategy (Chapter 3)
d) Further Animal Farm Propaganda- What is the real story and the Propaganda (Chapter 6)
e) Foreshadowing and Prediction
6) Crossword Puzzles and games
7) A test for the first two chapters, and essay questions for the whole book.
Again answer sheets are included with everything. The preview is a complete chapter 1 activity bundle. It has everything for the chapter. If you like it, please buy the Animal Farm Unit Bundle for this low price. Again I may be biased, but I think this Animal Farm Unit Bundle is the best you will find for adding variety and interest to this great novel.
