Rules:

1. Travel in groups of 2

2. Don't go out at night

3. Share resources

4. Clean up after your self

5. Communicate effectively

6. Do your job

7. Do not kill each other

The most important rule would have to be do not kill each other. Rule umber 7 would be really important because if you kill one person well that's not right and with out one less person well there's less resources.Not to kill is important because like rule number 5 is about to communicate effectively well 2 brains is better then one, and like number 6 says do your job well if someone is dead that means someone has to do that job now.

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

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.

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.

The effect I see on Ralph seeing the beast is that he could be scared of being killed by the beast before getting saved and or leaving the island alive. A reason why i think this is because he is kinda becoming paranoid like for example when he had the conch he was forgetting what the most important thing on the island was for the fire because with out it they cant have signal to be rescued.

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

Simon was coming back from the mountain to proof that there was no beast. While he was coming down from the mountain , there was a really bad thunder storm headed to the island. Everyone was scared of the thunder , so then jack said lets do our dance , after them doing it for a while the littluns pointed out Simon but to them they thought it was the beats. Then they broke from the circle and became a horse shoe which then Simon ran into them which then was beat to death. Then Simon struggled forward and broke the the ring and fell over the steep edge and then the strong rain dragged him into the ocean.

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.

The aspects of being in a group could be a good or bad thing. One one of the reasons that being in a group could be bad is because we you with a group you feel strong and you feel pressured and may do something you wouldn't do by yourself. An Aspect that is good of being in a group is that everyone has a little of something , like the saying two brains is smarter then one. In Lord Of The Flies a good reason at the beginning was that they all chose jobs that they were good at like for example Jack was a hunter because he preferred it.
