The dangers are very high you can get killed, dehrydrated, you could even go crazy!!! Dangerous animals could get you and eat you or harm you, there is a limited supply of water because you couold get dehryderd , yes you are surronded by thousnads and thousands of gallons of water but it can not be used as things such as drinking water. All in all you have the possibiblties that you could die.

RULES: 1. travel with someone 2. dont go out at night 3. share resources 4. clean up after yourself 5. communicate effectively 6. do your job 7. dont kill each other i think the most important rule is that you must share your resources and not takwe them for youreslf, yes all of theses resources are very important but that one to me is the most important one. Yes you shouldnt kill no one but i mean it is bound to happen.

One of the themes of this novel is survival. Explain why the setting of this story adds to or contributes to the theme. Survival contibutes to the theme because the whole point is being trapped on and island and trying to survive, it makes sence because there is no source of trying to live through the island with no grocery stores, transporation, or source of weaponary. and trying 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. 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.

Well for starters the island is on fire and that is one of the many problems one of the little boys thinks he sees monster which is also a problem, it has to be very difficult to find food, water and shelter when almost half the island is on fire. That is not a good island i would want to be on if i was stranded on an island and definelty not obe thats on fire

Describe the Beast that seems to be stalking the island. Use the text as backup for your info.

The beast is described as a staler with claws, teeth and very furry with wings the text says the leaves were roaring like the sea. Which means the beast is probably very big. I do believe there is a beast on the island i believe that it is that maybe its a big fly, i mean the book is titled "Lord Of The Flies''. It makes since.

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.

I think it started off with the boys having an assembly late at night, witch the boys have never have had an assembly late at night and one of their rules are not to got out at night and now they are all out there having assembly. Also when jack went off to kill a pig and left samneric to watch the fire it forced them to follow Jack and the the fire soon went out. Jack was not following the rules he should have been watching the fire instead of focusing on hunting all the time.

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.

Two rituals people are most familiar with at weddings is, " Wish you guys the best", " Hows ya mom and them", "You did a good job at this one". In this situation of you life i would think that the phrase " You did a good job at this one" is the most helpful in this situation, I have been to lots of funerals and weddings with my family, and someone always says "ya did a good job at this one''. I would believe it to be the most helpful in this sort of situation because it would probably make you feel accomplished in your decision making in life and that is always a good feeling to feel when your life is about to change for many years to come! Also being in a funeral you may hear " We are gather today for the death of.." You may hear this when a preacher or a family member is up at the casket giving away the person and preparing to lower them into the ground and saying their last words.

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 very fearful of the beast as if the beast may hurt them, in chapter 6 when Samneric saw the parachute that has landed on the island and was just stranded there the boys described it as maybe a beast. Samneric was very fearful of the beast too.

Retell in your own words what has happened to Simon. Use textual evidence to help you create a vivid paragraph

In chapter 9 of the Lord of the Flies Simon has died and passed away. Simon has identified as a Christ like figure because of his goodness. Simon soon was killed by the boys. Simon was climbing to the top of the hill to realize that the parashooter was not the beast, Simon was making his way back down the hill to tell the boys the news and to tell the boys that the beast is all just inside their heads. Simon had a ''dream'' and the beast was not some bear type creature it was all in their heads. Simon realizes there is about to be a storm and his nose is bleeding and he makes his way towards the mountain, he reaches the point to the parashooter and watches it blow away, Simon makes his way down the mountain to tell the boys there is no monster when he gets down there jack and Ralph and all the boys are beside a fire and before Simon could say anything and to remind them it was Simon the boys shouted "monster" and the boys violently kill Simon.

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.

Having a group of friends or a club has its positive and negative effects, if your in a group you need to make a society base, it is not do good when you dont have a society base with no rules witch is a negative effect. A positive effect for a group or a group of people that you may join is it may help you to keep you in track with things and may help you to be organized and to socialize with people you may or may not know at the time. Like in our novel "The Lord Of The Flies'' William Golding set the setting as the boys are stranded on a island and they have no adult and have to try to make there own society and live there.

“Which is better - to have rules and agree, or to hunt and kill?”

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.

I believe that hunt and kill is better because if you set rule and boundarys someone may not follow a pacific rule it could cause trouble and maybe even hate towards someone. In this book quote "Look! we've killed a pig we stole up on them we got in a circle" (Golding 69). This was very good at the time because they have now killed a pig they can now have super and eat a good meal! but then it Ralph said "You let the fire go out" (Golding 69). It was a bad effect on the people because now they cant even cook the pig, they were to busy hunting and they have now let the fire go out witch is a negative effect. Id believe that my decision is both because you always need to hunt but Jacks job was to keep the fire going and he failed at that.

I choose this picture because it describe the "Lord of The flies" perfectly the pig is what they saw and heard in their minds. From what they thought was a beast with fur, claws, sharp teeth was actually a pig head on a stick. The summary of this book is that somewhere during the war a plane crushed on an island with British boys on board as the plane crashed the pilot died along as with the plane. The author has a setting of the book for the British boys to be on the island with a no adults type society.

16. I though this novel was a very good book but it was also a very hard novel to understand, this to me would seem to be a high school or college type novel. It had lots of foreshadowing and metaphors. I liked Mrs. Lyda reading a lot better than the man on the audio book reading to us as a classroom, he did not have as much enthusatic as Mrs. Lyda did when she was reading to the classroom. I love how the author put the setting of the book with a bunch of boys that was very young and had to try to survive with no adults. I absolutely loved this book and i can not wait to watch the movie or even read the book again!!!
