Activity Overview


As students read Animal Farm, they may find it helpful to analyze propaganda both as a technique used in history, and also in the novel, as the use of propaganda is essential to both the revolution on the farm and Napoleon's takeover.

After discussing what propaganda is, students can select examples of propaganda, such as one of Squealer's speeches, and create a poster that could have been hung somewhere on the farm. The posters should not have to directly quote any speeches, but students will want to draw imagery and inspiration from them, and they should be able to explain their choices of rhetoric.

If you'd like to extend the activity to connect with history, students can research propaganda from the Russian revolution and adapt it to the Animalism movement of Animal Farm.
