What dangers do you see as a person stranded on this deserted island. Be specific and explain your answers.
The dangers someone has if they are stranded are having enough resources for themselves. They will have trouble finding food and shelter. They have to compete with other animals for the food and they will have to protect themselves. There would be a lot of problems like you could die from the things you eat or when an animal bites you it could lead to an infection and you wouldn't be able to cure it because you're on an island with no one to call for help. You would have to find shelter because. You wouldn't know how long you are going to stay there it could be months or years it would depend how well known the island is and where the island is or if someone sees the plane crash and they could alert the rescue team. You would compete with other people that were on the plane because of the food and water and shelter that is available and you would compete with animals for all the things you need too. If there were apples you would have to fight with people because they would would be hungry and if there was babies you couldn't really fight because they need food since they are growing. If you caught an animal there would be no way to cook it well unless you made something that could hold meat and be cooked well done and if you ate it raw that would cause a disease because of the bacteria. Lots of people would die of dehydration and starvation or even getting sick since they don't have any way to treat it. If you get stranded for a long time you would be adapted to the surroundings around you. You would need to be smart to survive because you need to think of long term situations.
Create a list of characters from the novel The Lord of the Flies and add details about them using textual evidence from the novel. My example lists the characters you need to use.
1. Ralph is a fair twelve year old boy who seems to not like his peers that he has been stranded with. He tried to offhand and not to obviously uninterested
2. Piggy is one of the characters and he complains too much sometimes. He appears in the beginning of the story and continues to be on there.
3. Johnny was a carefree person as he was described in the story. It says "his face was dark with violent pleasure of making this stupendous noise" (Golding 18).
4. Jack would be one as well he is kind of a leader and can be bossy he wants to be their leader and he tries to be one.
5. Sam and Eric the twins. The story described them by saying "they grinned together, they were chunky and vital" (Golding 19).
6. Choir they were a group of boys and Ralph noticed them and described them as "dressed in strangely eccentric clothing. Shorts, Shirts, and a different garments they carried in their hands" (Golding 18).
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 (from the ones we created) and explain why that rule, above all others is most important on this island
1. Travel in 2+
2. Don't go out at night
3. Share resources
4. Clean after yourself
5. Communicate effectively
6. do your job
7. Do not kill each other
The most important rule is communicate effectively because you need to talk and not argue with your group because you don't want to have problems with the person that can help you.
One of the themes of this novel is survival. Explain why the setting of this story adds to or contributes to the theme.
There are kids on the island, Ralph is twelve years and a few months old (Golding 10). Piggy is also a kid who doesn't know where he is and they have realized that there are no grownups with them and come to a conclusion that more kids are on the island but they are scattered around and want to find them. The theme would be survival they struggle and have to find ways to survive.
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.
Problems the reader knows about is how will the boys get out of the island they need to find a way to call for help which the boys thought of but didn't succeed because the fire got out of control and killed a boy and they didn't even notice. They have had so many problems and sometimes they don't know how to solve them. One of the problems they also had was arguing too much, they made a rule where if you or someone was holding a shell they were able to talk and that soon got out of control as well because if one person was talking someone would talk too and they would get mad and change the rules and the arguing would go back and forth.
