While reading George Orwell's "Animal Farm," students will encounter the "Beasts of England" song. This activity requires the students to apply the song to their own life by re-writing "Beasts of England" about an issue or cause in their own life. There is also a short teacher sample song for the teacher to sing to get the students excited about the project. This activity promotes higher level thinking about the issues in "Animal Farm," helps develop writing and poetry skills, and also can be used to practice presentation skills.
