Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.

     Our family has been using resources from Progeny Press for a few years now.  We were so happy to be chosen to receive and review the e-guide Animal Farm Study Guide from them a few weeks ago and we have been using it to understand and discuss the book Animal Farm written by George Orwell.  


     These study guides are easy to download and print.  You can print them for all your students but are not allowed to share them with others.  This company works hard to make quality resources.  I love that they let you print copies for other students in your classroom or home.  It is more than fair.  

     The Animal Farm Study Guide is about 72 pages long. This particular guide is geared towards grades 9-12, but my daughter who is entering 8th grade soon enjoyed it.  The guide includes: 
  • About the Study Guide Author
  • Note to Instructor
  • Synopsis
  • About the Novel's Author
  • Background Information
  • Optional Prereading Activities
  • Chapter 1-2
  • Chapter 3-4
  • Chapter 5-6
  • Chapter 7
  • Chapter 8 
  • Chapter 9
  • Chapter 10
  • Overview
  • Optional Essays and Projects
  • Additional Resources
     Your purchase will also include an Answer Key in a separate download,  that will provide you as the teacher/parent with all the answers to the vocabulary, character studies, comprehension questions, and overall discussion questions. 

     In our home, we are on summer break, but we love to read and discuss books even though we are doing it informally.  We used this study guide as more of a discussion time after we read chapters of the book. We did use the vocabulary section more in-depth because I feel spelling and vocabulary are very important and there were quite a few words listed that my kiddos didn't know.  

     Our favorite part of the study guide was analogous to the characters, places, and events.  We had a good time researching and talking about each one.  One example is how Napoleon, the pig in the story, was modeled after Joseph Stalin.  Napoleon didn't like to talk much but always wanted his own way.  He not only got rid of his competition, but he also ruled as a dictator on the farm.  

     I love how this study guide and their others really bring up some interesting conversations and give us a deeper look into the book.  Progeny Press really knows how to make a book come alive.  You are learning so much as you read each book they provide study guides for.  It helps you comprehend more of the story and what the author is trying to say through his writings.
