After students have read "Animal Farm" by George Orwell, they view the 1999 movie of the same title. Students use the graphic organizer to write down the similarities and differences of the novel and movie. Animal Farm is an excellent novel that allows students to understand the complexities of communism.
**Please view the movie ahead of time, as there is a 1-2 minute "adult" scene towards the beginning of the movie that should be skipped. Otherwise, the movie is school-appropriate.
