Type the rules we created as a classroom from the board. This is something we will return to. In the meantime, pick the rule you find most important and explain why that rule, above all others is most important on this island.
Rules : 1). travel in to or more . 2). don't go out at night . 3). share resources 4). clean up after yourself 5). communicate effectively 6). do your job 7). do not kill each other
My favorite rule is share resources because there is not always gonna be enough for everyone to do there own thing sometimes these boys will have to share shelter and fruit . The fire might get to big and destroy everything and there probably wont be as much resources as they started with they are going to have to share.
One of the themes of this novel is survival. Explain why the setting of this story adds to or contributes to the theme.
The setting goes with the theme because all these boys are trying to survive with only fruit to eat and barely any water and they cant go down the mountain because of the fire is has gotten so big . One of the little kids have already died from the fire and ll the other little ones are just running around down there by the fire because they are supposed to be watching the fire. The older boys are trying to build shelter right now and its not going so well they tree branches will barely stay in place and the boys are starting to ask for meat but they cant get to any of the animals because they are up the mountain.
Ralph has said, “This is a good island” (Golding 35). Ralph’s pronouncement will prove ironic; it is definitely NOT a good island. What problems do readers already know about? Explain why these problems prove this is NOT a good island after all .
The boys climbed a mountain then started a fire and the fire grew to large and they can't get down because they would burn to death and the boys want meat but they cant go get it because of the fire. And one of the boys already died because of the fire.

Describe the Beast that seems to be stalking the island. Use the text as backup for your info.
Phil said that when he woke up he saw something big and horrid moving around in the trees . Then they figured out that Simon was the one going out at night . Percival said that the beast came from the lagoon . He said that it was a black hump backed figure . Then most of the boys jumped to the conclusion that it is a ghost .
Name at least two things the boys are doing or have given up that show how they are now operating on instinct and no longer trying to follow the rules of society. Explain your answers with information from the text.
The boys are going on a hunt on the north east side of the island because jack and his hunters have never been in that part of the island before and there leaving piggy behind to watch the little ones but that might not be the best idea because
- Piggy's glasses are broken and he can only see out of one of his eyes
- He is always getting scared
- The little ones are always running off
" I mean ----- how about us ? Suppose the beast comes when you're all away. I can't see proper , and if i get scared ---- " (101) .
