A Few Additional Notes
There is a large group activity in which students pretend they, as a whole class, are stranded in the mountains for one year. Their assignment is to devise a plan for their own survival for the year, including their plans for the structure of their community and an explanation of possible problems and solutions.
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. The detailed writing assignment sheets guide students through the assignments. The first assignment is to give students the opportunity to express their personal opinions: students write a composition in which they set forth the seven commandments they think are appropriate for our society. The second assignment is to inform: students write compositions in which they answer one of the Extra Discussion Questions/Writing Assignments. The third assignment is to write a persuasive composition: students pretend they are Snowball and create a complete plan for replacing Napoleon.
These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adaped for independent study work, lit circles or book groups, home school use, or tutoring. If you have never taught this book before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this book before, you might like to know that many veteran teachers have told us they have found our LitPlan Teacher Pack manuals to be much more thorough and more helpful than other materials they have used.
