This Animal Farm Webquest is designed for students to get a context for the book's history as well as the importance of George Orwell. It is designed to be used before they read the book. The questions allow for students to explore Orwell, his legacy, as well as the historical background of "Animal Farm". They will also be able to get the inside jokes and Orwell's political barbs. The Webquest includes making drawings too.
Students should write full answers in order to get the most from the assignment. As students read the book, they can then go back and match what they learned from the Webquest to what is happening in the novel.
