Russian Revolution and Animal Farm

Seventh grade students have read Animal Farm in English class, but have not discussed the Russian Revolution or the allegorical elements of the novel. Because of time constraints, we only have one day to devote to doing that in history class.  It kills me that we’re so limited on time, but I wanted to at least give the students an opportunity to think about allegory and  connections between the novel and the events in Russia during and following the Revolution. Here’s the lesson I’ve created for the day. (We’re using a video from Discovery Ed streaming to offer a quick overview to the Russian history.) We’ll see how it goes 🙂
