Animal Farm Inspiration in English 1

English 1 Makes Creative Country and Commandments Inspired by Animal Farm
Animal Farm Inspiration in English 1

While reading Animal Farm, by George Orwell, Ms. Patzwald’s English 1 Class was inspired to create their own Countries and Commandments which resulted in various creative ideas based on Animal Farm. The dystopian novel challenges authoritarian dictatorships following World War II by using animals uprising against their human masters.

At the end of the project, the students had created different interpretations of which things were more important than others. Some, were funny such as Burgerland, while others took a more important approach such as Florandes, in which the student described discrimination, free speech, and the protection of animals and the environment.

Animal Farm influences young readers to really understand authoritarian rule, with the use of animals. And human impact on the environment.

Here are some of the countries and commandments the students made:
