Put events in order as they happened when the boys are first stranded and must figure out how to survive. Complete sentences from the novel with their missing vocabulary words. Give meaning to the author's use of 'mankind's essential illness', and describe how this has affected the boys on the island. Map out Ralph's mindset by identifying some of the things that he reflects on. Create a shipwreck plan with a group that will get food, water, shelter, and possible rescue. Aligned to your State Standards and written to Bloom's Taxonomy, our worksheets incorporate a variety of scaffolding strategies along with additional crossword, word search, comprehension quiz and answer key.

    About the Novel:
    Lord of the Flies, written by Nobel Prize-winner William Golding, is a story about a group of boys stranded on a deserted island, who must establish order amongst themselves. Shortly after crashing onto a deserted island, a group of pre-adolescent boys form a community, electing Ralph to be their leader. As his first act, Ralph proclaims the boys will have fun and keep the signal fire going. All is well until thirst for power draws one boy to form his own tribe of "savages". Armed with the fear of a fictitious beast, this group of boys descend into further savagery with sacrifice and death. The story reaches its climax as the beast is revealed to be within each boy's heart, and Ralph is forced to flee for his survival.

    Great resource for use with lower level readers especially. Unlike so many resources, this does not look childish to high school readers.

    I used this with my 8th graders. The questions were challenging, yet there was variety. Some questions just asked for opinions. I liked how many of the questions asked for evidence from the text to support the answer. The answer key was helpful. Thank you very much!

    Homeschooling my son and grabbed this title from the bookstore almost on impulse, I remembered liking it in school. I suspected it was a little advanced for him so I purchased this to "test" his comprehension... I am so glad I did! He exceeded my expectations... and so did this product. Will buy from this seller again!
