The Lord Of The Flies A Digital journal

What dangers do you see as a person stranded on this deserted island. Be specific and explain your answers? The dangers would probably be animals, they could eat you. Some others would be like poisoness plants and you could eat them and they would also kill you.

Ralph - fair (8), 12 years old (10), arrogant (didn't ask Piggy his name (11)

Piggy- fat(1),



Sam and Eric - they are very alike(

Rules- 1: Travel in 2+

2: Don't go out at night

3: Share resources

4: Clean up after yourself

5: Communicate effectively- I think this is the most important rule because communication is key and if i was stuck on an island i would try to communicate effectively because i would want to survive for as long as possible, so we talk to see what we're doing for example if we didn't communicate and we both end up going out and lets say getting fruit, so no one would of stayed and created the shelter or something like that instead everyone is out getting food.

6: Do your job

7: Do not kill each other

Survival is key in this novel, so that means that survival is very important. In this novel the characters strive to survive , because they are on an island where they could get killed by anything and they want to get off the island to see their families and they're just kids they can't survive forever by themselves.

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.// In this novel, the characters are stranded on an island and there is a rumor going around that there is a "beast" on this island and it could potentially kill everyone on this island

Meat symbolizes the temptation the boys face on the island.-//Symbols are physical things that represent abstract ideas. The following are some of the symbols from the novel The Lord of the Flies.

Describe the Beast that seems to be stalking the island. Use the text as backup for your info.// According to the selection the beast is big and has claws and teeth and the boys are very scared and some of the boys want to go out and hunt the beast and some just want to stay where they are and try to get rescued instead of hunting for something.

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. //Piggy hasn't given up something but he got used to not being "babied" as much as he was with his aunt, he still complains but not as much as he used to because in the first few chapters he made a lot of reference to his aunt like "my auntie.." this and that. Ralph took control and matured you could say but he really stood up and you could say "acted like adults". A lot of characters have had to grow up in a way and start taking care of themselves and others, so this means that their parents aren't there at the moment to help them.

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.//1. rest in peace 2. will never be forgotten 3.He/She was a good person(just give them compliments). The phrase that I picked is the compliments, I chose that one because at your funeral people say nice things about you even though they could of possibly not been true and the say these things because they kinda have to because its bad to say bad things about someone who is dead.

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.// I think that Ralph is more effected by the beast because he is chief and everyone believes in the beast and everyone goes to Ralph to ask them if they can go kill or hunt for the beast and Ralph is effected by this.

Retell in your own words what has happened to Simon. Use textual evidence to help you create a vivid paragraph.// In the novel Simon dies because the group kills him, what I think is that the group of boys didn't know it was him because there was thunder and it was dark and raining so the boys were scared and when you're scared you do things, and you don't really think about what you're doing because your blood is full of adrenaline and you fight or flight response can take over.

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.// Some of the cons of being in a group is that you have to run everything through your group also that they might not agree with everything you say or do and then maybe they want to do their own thing, but the idea with the most votes is the one that they are gonna follow.

“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.// I think to have rules and agree is better because it helps them stay together and not fight so much and hunting and killing is bad because there is no stability with that decision and with rules and agreeing there is stability/ structure

"He screwed up his eyes and swung round to search the horizon"

Dear Mrs.Lyda's student,

So this novel was very interesting there was a lot of twist and turns like, wow, I really liked it though, I got very invested into some of the characters and all the characters all had some kind of secret or just something to hide. Sometimes I had to remind myself that all the people on this island were kids. When I first saw this book I thought it was going to be boring but then we were a few pages into the book and I loved it so much.
