Animal Farm
Written by George Orwell
Summary Chapter 1
In the beginning of the chapter Mr. Jones went to sleep. The pig known as Old Major (this was how he was called but his name is Willingdon Beauty) called upon a meeting with all the animals in the barn. He stated it was because of a dream he had. He made a whole speech about his thoughts about the dream and about how they should rebel against the tyranny of man. He mentioned how the man took from them but didn't produce. Old Major also recalled a song in his dream. The song was about the beasts of England and how one day only beast would roam the field and no man would be there. The whole farm sang it until they heard Mr. Jones wake up. After that they all went hurriedly to sleep.

Discussion Director
1) What do you think is the most important event in the reading? Why?

2) Who do you think is the main character? Why?

3) How many animals are there? What are they?

4) Who says the word "comrades" most of the time?

5) Does the book remind you of another of another book? Why?

6) Where do you think it is located? Why?

7) Is the owner good or bad for the animals? Why?
I chose this image, because it represents the main theme discussed in the chapter. The pig calling all the animals to a big meeting that would change their way of thinking. Also the pig teaching the youngsters the song that he had learned during his pokerhood. Pg.26-34.
Connector (Chapter 1)
The way the old pig called to a meeting in the barn, reminded me of how Mr. Tim calls us to a student council meeting. because he does it in the free time that the animals have and they discussed the major problems of the barn.
The pig talking about his dream, reminded me of the book we read, the alchemist in which the character goes on a big journey because of a dream he had.
The way he called death upon all humans, reminded me I the happened events of World War II when hitler called death upon all Jews.
The way the animals didn't know how to tell who was enemy and who was friends, rats, reminded me of countries now a days.

Passage:
The last paragraph of page 31

Key Words/ Sentence:
“ Men are evil” , “Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy”, “All animals are equal”. (p. 31-32)

3 Reasons For Choosing:
1.
The name of the book in portuguese is Animal Revolution, which means that the animals will revolt. The first two sentences that I chose suggest that by, showing that they hate humans and that humans are their enemies.

2.
I also know that the book is a metaphor of socialism/communism. The sentence, “All animals are equal”, shows that.

3.
Later on on the book these sentences may be remembered by the Major.

Connector Chapter 2
Summarizer (Chapter 2)
In this chapter, Old Major dies. Since he died there was more secret activity. Napoleon, Snowball, and Squealer become the leaders of the barn. They took the lead because they are considered the most intelligent animals of the barn. They elaborated Old Major's reasoning and called it Animalism and they shared with the others. After a while, the animals have a Rebellion and the humans run away. After the animals won, they threw all the equipments that was used to torture them in a fire they made. Everyone was happy. The animals' rules are called Seven Commandments. Later on, one of the pigs milk the cows, then go to work in the farm. When all the animals come back, the milk disappeared.
CONNECTIONs:

Napoleon reminded me of the Napoleon Bonaparte because of the name and because both were leaders
Animal farm reminds me of Babe Pig in a City because the main characters until now are pigs and the animals talk and have a society.
When the animals came back and the milk was not there it reminded me of a short story that i read that when the people came the things weren't there anymore
The animals attacking the human reminded me of a video in YouTube called bulls run.

Passage Puller CH3
Do you know what could happen if we pigs failed in our duty? Jones would come back! Yes Jones would come back! Surely, comrades.

I think this sentence in pg 52 is interesting because he is acting like a modern day leader, saying "Facts" that might just be to keep the public calmed down.

-The Animal Committee makes me think they have many centers.
-Snowball makes me think it's a white, fluffy snowball.



Summarizer Chapter 3
The animals had done their best harvest in history. They took only two days to harvest plenty of food. Boxer by far was the one the who worked the hardest. He was always waking up earlier than everybody and loved to volunteer. Benjamin didn't change after the Rebellion as well as the others. The pigs decided to educate the animals. Snowball created several committees. They figured out most animals were stupid and couldn't even memorize the Seven Commandments. So the pigs decided to shorten it up to "four legs good, two legs bad." It was figured out that the pigs were the ones taking the milk and apples. The very clever pigs gave the excuse that it was for their health, and if they weren't healthy Jones would come back.
Connector Chapter 4

3.
Frederick and Pilkington creating rumors about what goes on in the Animal Farm reminds me of the concentration camps and the movie "The Boy in Striped Pajamas" because rumors were created about what goes on in the camps.
4.
The animals all singing Beasts of England reminds me of slaves in America because of how they had to work like the animals and how they sang their own songs.
5.
The way Mr. Jones and the other people failed to rebel agains the animals reminds me of Revolta de Canudos that we learned about in Brazilian Cultures because the gov't failed to take the town back.
Summarizer Chapter 4
Vocabulary CH4
I chose/made this picture to represent the main event of the chapter. I think the failed rebellion of the humans is a big event of the book and it shows that the animals have power. This picture also shows how Snowball is always in command and how he will be an important figure in the story that the humans will probably try to get rid of (pgs. 57-59).
The animals in Animal Farm have spread the word of their rebellion throughout the farms of England. Farm owners were getting worried that their own animals would turn onto them. A group of farmers, Mr. Jones was one of them, attacked Animal farm with guns and hoes. The men got ambushed by the animals and quickly defeated. The animals decided to call this day ``Cowshed´´ since those were the main animals to partake in the war. they made military awards to honor those who served in the fight and decided to fire the only gun left by the humans twice a year, once the day of the anniversary of the "Cowshed" war and once the day of anniversary of the farm.

Passage Puller CH4
Nevertheless, they were both thoroughly firghtened by the rebellion on Animal Farm, and very anxious to prevent their own animals from learning too much about it.

I think this passage is interesting because it shows that they are very intelligent. It shows that they don't want to share their knowledge. It also shows that they are pretty scared that that will happen because they don't want to lose their power over them.

In this chapter, Mollie was seen at the hedges between the Animal Farm and Foxwood being stroked by a person. Clover suspected and checked under Mollie's straw where there was sugar and many colored ribbons. Mollie left the farm and wasn't mentioned anymore three days after this. Later, Snowball and Napoleon always disagreed in everything. Snowball eventually wanted to build a windmill and Napoleon disagreed so much to the point that he urinated on Snowball's plan. When Snowball was ready to present his plan, Napoleon called out the dogs he had trained and scared Snowball away for good. After this Napoleon took over the farm and changed things such as no more Sunday meetings. He decided that everyone shall be given their instructions for the week on Sunday. Napoleon also decided to build the windmill again which after all was his from the beginning and Snowball had stolen. It was all a tactic to get rid of Snowball.

2nd paragraph P. 81 - P. 83
Key Words/Sentences:
"The windmill was in ruins."; "Do you know the enemy who has come in the night and overthrown our windmill? SNOWBALL!"; "Snowball had probably come from the direction of Foxwood Farm."

Reason:
I chose this passage because this was a main event in the chapter. It seems as though Snowball has come back and I think that is important. This also shows Napoleon's leadership because of how he walked in front and how he always talks. It also shows Napoleon's skill to manipulate others by telling them they will be rewarded if they capture Snowball dead or alive. The passage also shows how the windmill has been destroyed and the animals' year of work was destroyed.

Summarizer CH 6
The animals are used like slaves but they were happy to work like that. The harvesting is less successful. The windmill is having difficulties. Napoleon trades materials that only humans can create with Foxwood and Pinchfield. Some animals start to think that this is bad. The pigs are breaking the rules. They now sleep in beds without sheets. The animals are also starting to think that this is against the rules. When Muriel reads the rules to Clover, which is one of the most loyal animal to Napoleon, he starts to think that Napoleon is a liar. Snowball came in and destroyed the windmill.
Connector Chapter 6
When the animals started negotiating with the "outer world" it reminded me of soldiers negotiating for food and cigarets, in between the trenches on World War I.
When Napoleon went looking for Snowball on the farm it reminded me of CSI.
When Napoleon set a bounty hunt for Snowball that reminded me of the Wild West.
The way things are working now on the farm are reminding me of the Brazilian government. They trick the dumb people into thinking their rules/laws are right.
This picture is an image that represents the destroyed windmill. (p.81)

Summarizer Chapter 7
As time passed the animals were working more and more like slaves. There work time increased and their rations decreased. Like always Boxer was the only one motivated. The animals were suspecting that Snowball was source of all their problems and that he was hiding in one of the neighboring farms. Napoleon was rarely seen and when he appeared in public he was heavily guarded by his dogs. The animals started started getting suspicious when things worsen. They started to think that they working more than they did with Jones. Squealer immediately persuaded them to believe in more of his lies. Napoleon was suspecting that in between the animals there was a trator helping snowball. The animals got all gathered together for a trial. One by one tra
This image shows Napoleon's ruling towards the animals of the farm.

Chapter 7
86-87
KEY:murder, rebellion, rarely appeared in public, he did not even appear at Sunday meetings.
REASON:I think this is a part where we actually understand what is happening in animal farm. It has built itself from a place of unity to a pit of lies. All the animals turned into puppets and Napoleon the puppeteer.
Connector Chapter 8

1. The way Napoleon is changing the commandments to fit his needs or mistakes reminds me of me and Humberto playing games where when one of us died we had to switch but I changed it to a higher number so I could play for longer.
2. The way the animals are being treated reminds me of slaves in the way that they were treated in the same way. They both had to work all day and were barely fed enough.
3. The different nicknames Napoleon had made for himself reminds me of North Korea because their leader also makes himself look like a greater figure by teaching different stories in education.
4. The way Squealer convinces all the animals about something that didn't happen reminds me of the MIB movies in the way that the characters there use a brain washing tool and tell the people affected a different story from what really happened.
Summarizer Chapter 8
I chose this picture because I think it symbolizes everything that is important I this chapter and the main events that mean something to the book. This picture depicts the exchange with Napoleon and Frederick and how he got payed with counterfeits, Napoleon breaking the commandments but making it seem okay, the windmill being destroyed yet again, and the Battle of the Windmill (104-113).
Connector Chapter 7

In this chapter we see the manipulation powers of napoleon and squealer being used to their finest. They started to make any kind of rumors and rules that would benefit themselves. the animals finished the windmill and napoleon named it after himself. After a fraud trade with Frederick, him and his men attacked the barn and destroyed the windmill. the animals celebrated after winning the battle. the pigs got too "drinky" and got a severe hangover. they changed the rules and said that they could drink but not on excess.
- Napoleon's character and acts resemble like Kim Jon Ill.
- Squealer looks like a guy that has been threatened if he doesn't do something Napoleon likes. Like in those war movies.
- The chickens reminded me a little bit like the protesters in Venezuela.
-Napoleon cheating on everyone reminds me of a weird series called Pretty Little Liars

Chapter 8
"Somehow or other, the last two words had slipped out of the animals' memory.

I think this passage is a good one to make a summary of the chapter , because it shows a bit how Napoleon is taking advantage of the other animals because they are dumb. So he decided to slightly modify the rules of the Seven Commandments.
Summarizer Chapter 9
In this chapter, Napoleon decided to start a schoolhouse for the thirty one pigs that he is the father to. They were also in the process of rebuilding the windmill. The pigs were brewing barley, made beer, and drank beer. A pint was assigned to each pig except for Napoleon who got half a gallon. Rations were getting reduced except for the pigs' and the dogs' rations who were getting fatter. Boxer had a split hoof, was aging, and would not live to see the windmill rebuilt. At one point he simply fell over and mentioned that it was his lungs. Squealer announced that Napoleon planned on sending him to the Willingdon veterinary but when the van came to pick him up it was painted with a horse slaughtering and glue boiler company logo. The pigs said that the hospital had bought the van, did not have time to repaint the logo, and that was where there was a misunderstanding. In the end it turned out that the pigs had sold Boxer for whiskey.
Chapter 9
When boxer was sent off to the "doctor" reminded me of how the Venezuelan government sent Chavez to the "doctor" when he was actually dead.
The way squealer tried to cover up the story of Boxer reminds me of the Venezuelan government trying to hide what happened to the "commander".
The 31 new descendants of napoleon remind of when famous people have babies and most of the time say "its not mine."
The way Boxer kept on pushing those boulders reminded me of the greek legend of.. because of the way that even though it was a burden. It was for a good cause.

Reasons: I chose these pages because I think that they sum up the story and show how the pigs have changed. The animals are turning more into humans and have changed the farm. Animals are talking to humans and this shows how they have changed over the course of the story.
This picture illustrates what the pigs have become, humans. (last page)

When the animals saw the pigs like humans it reminded of a book series that I read when I was smaller, in which the main characters would transform into animals

Summarizer chapter 10
The pigs start walking on two legs, carrying whips, and wearing human clothes. They are acting humans. The rules have changed again. Clover did no retire yet because he knew what was going to happen if he did. Napoleon changed the policy. Animal Farm is now renamed as Manor Farm. The word "comrade" is no longer accepted in the farm. Napoleon is friends with humans and even plays cards with Pilkington but at a point, they had an argument on aces of spades. A second windmill has been rebuilt.
