Journal, Part 1: Animal Farm

The questions in this Journal Assignment cover readings in Lessons 1–4 of the Animal Farm unit (Chapters 1–5 of the text). You will probably want to wait until after Lesson 4 before you answer these questions, but you should keep the questions in mind as you work on Lessons 1–3.

1. Reread “Beasts of England.” Find an example of the negative situation the song describes, the vision of hope for the future it communicates, and the potential foreshadowing it contains.


2. Return to Chapter 1 to find at least two examples of human characteristics that are attributed to the animals on the farm.


3. What is a potential problem in reducing the Commandments to “Four legs good, two legs bad”?


4. Even without the pigs promoting themselves, there are differences among the animals. What are some of the differences and what do they suggest about human society? How does a society try to create equality among people who are very different from one another?


5. At the end of Chapter 3, the narrator says that all is well, but then lists numerous ways that things were imperfect. What might these imperfections suggest and foreshadow?


6. After the Battle of the Cowshed, the animals are in a near frenzy of excitement. Name at least three things they do after the Battle.


7. How do the animals respond to the conflict between Napoleon and Snowball? How is this similar to the way humans behave in political situations?


8. What is the danger of Boxer’s response to the pigs’ orders and explanations?
