The theme of this novel is survival because a group of young kids are stranded in a island. These young kids have to find a way to get help with no adults around. These kids make rules and separate into groups. Kids like these try to make some resources and us them for survival. This is how it shows this a survival theme to this novel.
Ralph has said, “This is a good island” (Golding 35). Ralph’s pronouncement will prove ironic; it is definitely NOT a good island. This is an example of foreshadowing. What problems do readers already know about? Explain why these problems prove this is NOT a good island after all.
Some problems that proof this is not a good island "There wasn't any smoke. Only flame"(Golden 42). Another problem that shows is "That storm dragged it out of the sea. It wasn't half dangerous with all them tree trunks falling"(Golden 8).

Describe the Beast that seems to be stalking the island. Use the text as backup for your info.
The beast seems to be stalking the island is big and comes out at night. "I was asleep when the twisty things were frighting and when they went away a was awake, and I saw something big and horrid moving in the trees" (Golden 85).
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 group left piggy and the little ones alone in the dark while the others left in look for the beast "Piggy'll look after them" (Golden 101). They also don't us the conch no more "We don't need the conch anymore"(Golden 102). Don't go out at night alone, travel 2+ and communicate effectively.
Two rituals people are most familiar with are weddings and funerals. Pick an event (a wedding or a funeral). Make a list of at least 3 phrases people use at the event you picked. Using one of your phrases, explain why your phrase is helpful in the situation.

Choose a character, either Ralph or Jack and explain the effect seeing the Beast has on the character you have chosen. Use textual information to support your answer.
Ralph was paralyzed after seeing the beast. Ralph was immovable "Not scared so much as paralyzed; hung up there immovable on the top of a diminishing, moving mountain" (Golden 123).
Retell in your own words what has happened to Simon. Use textual evidence to help you create a vivid paragraph.
Simon was killed by the others when coming out of the trees. Jack and his tribe were doing a dance for the beast and "Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood! Do him in (Golden 152)! during the dance they kill Simon. "...Simon's dead body moved out towards the open sea" (Golden 154).
In life people create groups. These groups might be at school, in sports, in extracurricular activities, and through religious organizations. Explain what needs groups fill for people. Explain both the positive and negative aspects of being part of a group. You may relate this to our novel, or you may make it a person reflection of your own experience.
MY point of view of this novel (positive) they were rules. The negative part of the novel was when the did not agree on the same leader, and then the group separated.
Using this quote, take a stand. Pick a side and explain why your decision is best on this island here at the end of Chapter 11. Don’t forget to use textual evidence to support your answer.
“Which is better - to have rules and agree, or to hunt and kill?”
I pick Ralph because he wants rescue and Jack wants to stay in the island. Ralph say rules and to agree with them are better in my opinion because after Jack formed his own group there was a lot of killing "Simon's dead body moved out to the open sea"(Golden 154). Ralph had his own group and was calm be less people. All the big boys went with Jack "Where's Bill and Roger? .... "I've expect they've gone (Golden 131).
A picture is worth a thousand words
I choose the picture of an island because this where it all started. "This is an island" (Golden 7). The island where they landed and found a conch. The hunting and the disband of the boys. The island shows a forest where Simon was killed and a little boy. The hunting and the disband of the boys. This where they were until they were rescued.
My opinion about this novel is that it was alright at the being but not really the end. The setting of the novel is in an island that's what liked about it and that they were little British boys that tried to survive by themselves. The boys are really young and the oldest is like about 12. These boys live an adventure of survival. These kids can do basically anything. Something doesn't seem right so they try to figure it out, different minds set 2 different groups.
