This 20-slide lesson explores Chapter 2 of George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’.
In this comprehensive lesson, students consider how the revolution begins and how Orwell introduces the key characters of Napoleon, Snowball, and Squealer (among others). The Seven Commandments are debated and discussed. The allegorical function of the novella is also closely studied, as pupils learn about Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin, as well as the role of the Russian Orthodox Church in the Russian Revolution and its aftermath.
Questions, discussion points, and tasks are included for students.
The lesson is ideal for KS3 or GCSE students.
