This is a pre reading Prezi for the book "Animal Farm" by George Orwell (Now with Handout for students to follow along with!)
The prezi starts with students responding to 10 questions about freedom, equality, and what their version of a perfect society would be.
Students are then shown a clip from the 1999 "Animal Farm" movie to get an idea of what the book is about (I also include a silly clip that my students love to explain the idea of "sugar candy mountain)
From there they watch a 60 second clip on what an allegory is and practice identifying allegories with "Terrible Things" by Eve Bunting
They are given background knowledge on the Russian Revolution and watch two short clips comparing "Animal Farm" to key players in the revolution.
They are then introduced to the main characters of the novel.
Students follow along while filling out the included handout (They can then retain the handout for studying later!)
Check out the sample to see the handout!
