LORD OF THE FLIES
EXAM
Pick four of the following quotes that you feel you can
tie into a common idea and use them to do the following:

1.        Explain the significance of each quote. Describe its
meaning in relation to the story itself and the impact it had on
characters or plot.

2.        Attribute each of the four quotes you have chosen to a
character in the story. The character does not necessarily have
to have said the quote. Whom does the quote most resemble in
terms of their character, hopes, dreams, upbringing, or actions?
Explain why you made the connection thoroughly and find a
quote of your own (from the book) to support your theory.

3.        Make a collage on the other side of your explanations or
on a separate piece of paper that puts your quotes' ideas into
picture form. You can use magazines, printouts, or your own
drawings. You can also, if you wish, make them three dimensional.
