What dangers do you see as a person stranded on this deserted island. Be specific and explain your answers. The dangers I see on a stranded island are no source of food or water. This is a big danger to me because you can starve to death or become very dehydrated. Another big danger is is no shelter to stay warm. There's also no warm clothing to keep warm in the winter or colder months. You will also need a place to sleep.

bad or good island?
This island is not a good island because there are no adult supervison. The supervison causes problems by if they get hurt or scared there's no body to help them. Also piggy is scared to be by his self with no adults. Also no leaders in the group because they keep changing so they have no real good guardian to help them. They also have two groups named "lilluns" and the "biguns" and nobody is there to watch the littler kids.
- civilnation= the platform
- piggy's glasses=survial
is there a beast?
The beast is scarying the little kids and the big kids. The only ones that things there's not a beast are Ralph and Simon. The rest of them think there's a beast and it scares them. They also are still tryig to figure out what the "beast" is.
the boys have given up on trying to get rescued, because one time there was a ship that came while it was dark and they didn't bother to try and save them self's or get their attention. They are also going to the part of the island that they have never been. and the liltuns are scared to go there. But the littluns are scared of the beast but Simon and Ralph don't think that there is a beast.
Jack experience with the beast was furious. He also was furiously going up to the mountain by his self. Jack is sure there's a beast on the mountain top. jack thinks Ralph is a coward who should be removed from his leadership role. The other boys refuse to vote Ralph out of power. After jack storms off he asks if there's anyone that wants to go with him but the other boys are to scared. Some littluns sneak off to be with Jacks camp. Jack declares his self as chief at his on camp. Some of the kids thought it would be better and more fun to be at jacks camp, but it was only fun for a few kids.
Retell in your own words what has happened to Simon. Use textual evidence to help you create a vivid paragraph
The thing that happened to Simon was very violent Jack declares himself the leader of the new tribe of hunters and organizes a hunt and a violent ritual slaughter of a pig. The boys sharpened spear on both sides,and put the pigs head on the spear and stuck the other end in the ground. After the violent ritual, Simon had witnessed. He came out of hes hiding place and saw the "lord of the flies". Simon has a bad vision during which it seems to him that the head is speaking. The head is saying that Simon will never escape. Simon then faints. A little later Simon wakes up and goes to the top of the mountain and sees the dead parachutist. Then he realizes that the "beast on the mountain" is not real, that the beast is internal. the he startes coming down to the beach were the other boys are to tell them, but the boys are very chaotic and are shouting " kill the beast, cut his throat, spill his guts". Then one of the littluns shouts "HIM! HIM!" and all the boys started beating Simon until he died.
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.
I think that groups of any kind should have rules. Many bad things could happen if you don't have good rules and stick by them. Because if you don't follow the rules it can turn out in an injury and/or death. Just like in the novel " Lord of the Flies", Simon was not following the rules by traveling in two, and communicate effectively and sadly he died. Also Piggy was killed as well. There needs to be rules at all time and they need to be in forced by the leader, or the adult.
“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 think that you should have" rules and agree" because if you don't have rules you can kill people or have accidents. in the novel " Lord of the Flies " Piggy wasn't following the rules that they had and he had died. You can also get things done that need to be done on an island full of kids.
"Simon saw a humped thing suddenly sit up on the top and look down at him. He hid his face, and toiled. The flies got to the figure too."
This quote means a lot to the boys because castle rock is were the " Beast" is. The boys were very scared to go to castle rock, but Simon's hiding place was near the mountain. So Simon decided to see if the beast was real. He went up to the mountain were the other boys said the beast was but it was just a dead parachutist. Simon untied the "beast" which was a parachutist and set him free. the "beast" later flew out to sea.
Dear future students, the novel " Lord of the Flies" was about a group of young boys who are stranded on a island with no adults around to save them. The island had no other people on it, but there was a plane crash on the island it cause a huge indention. This book was very good and I thought that it was very clear other than the British words. The reading I liked best was the British recording and at other times I liked your reading. I think that anyone looking for a little challenge in a book should read this.
