when the boys first arive on the island, Ralph finds a conch shell that he uses to not only bring order, but to gather everyone that survived together. the conch sell also gave others the power to let other talk and to contribute to the rules of the island. hut's are built to proved selter and safety and a signal fire was forged to get the attention of any passing ships in call for a rescue.

Chapter One 1) How do the boys get stranded on the island? The setting of the novel is during the war. The plane that had all the young boys was shot down over the sea. The boys were evacuated from the atomic bomb 2) Describe the relationship between Ralph and Piggy at the beginning of the novel -Ralph is excited to find out about “No grown-ups”= carefree -Piggy sounds a little concerned. - 3) Why does Ralph reveal Piggy’s nickname to Jack?
When Jack would speak, the others would “[assent] gravely.” (Golding 43). The assembly would continuously agree with Jack, even if deep down, they didn’t. They were fearful of what Jack would do if they disagreed with him. When in a meeting, “Piggy opened his mouth to speak, caught Jack’s eye, and shut it again.” (Golding 42). Jack has clear authority over Piggy in this situation.
From the beginning of the novel, piggy has a connection with the conch, it symbolises civilisation as the boys used it to maintain order in the meetings. Piggy clung onto the comfort of the conch. When Jack separated from Ralph’s leadership and formed his own tribe, piggy still prolonged faith in the conch and its significance of power and the right to be heard, however piggy and the conch both fall governing in the death of them thus symbolizing the death of intelligence and the right of authority, leaving Jack in complete control. The conch allowed piggy the right to be heard which he was not usually able to do. This shows that piggy tries to prevent the boys descending into savagery with his intelligence and he is very vocal, perhaps aggravating the other boys, especially Jack, ‘you’re talking too much, shut up Fatty.’
After the members of Ralph's tribe get killed, Ralph becomes next in line because he is the only one left. At the end, a rescue occurs by an adult who saw their fire, and the boys become children again. One thing the movie lacks are the boys finding each other when the conch is blown. Also when Jack is out looking to kill Ralf, the book talks about how anonymous boy found Ralph hiding but the movie shows how some boys find Ralph hiding but they do not rat him out. I think they did this to show more of a loyalty to Ralph.
So, already the conch is becoming greatly important and influential showing its significance. The conch’s significance is then reiterated at the beginning of chapter two with the “crowded” platform from the blow of the conch; as the boys answer Ralph’s call and keep order amongst them. While the others after just one blow of the conch acknowledge the importance of rules, at the same time, the ability to build society in a short period of time is put across. The actual fact of them being mentioned so closely together, suggests the key idea of the significance of the conch, as it is being used by Ralph to create and maintain their society on the island. It is also significant that the conch breaks, in a horrific and vivid fashion, signalling the end of society, and any chance to salvage it.
Throughout the novel the group of boys used a conch shell to call ‘meetings’, sort of like a council, which was an idea brought up by Ralph. Everyone, including Jack and his hunters agreed with this. Over a short time Jack became more jealous of the power Ralph had and wished the same for himself. They both had traits to being a good leader such as Ralph being caring, knowing what was essential, as well as acknowledging the importance of rescue while Jack asks in a meeting “who wants to join my tribe” and made promises to “hunt, feast and have fun” forcing the boys giving into their desires and forgetting about what was important, rescue. An obvious thing they have in common is a dislike for one another that is stemmed from their ‘political rivalry’.
Lord of the Flies – Assignment Right VS Wrong In the novel “Lord of the Flies” the kids did both right and wrong things. The right things that they boys did are: for example in chapter 2 Ralph finds a conch and decides to use it for calling all the other boys to plan out the things that they are going to do to survive instead of playing with it like an amateur , that is one example of a right thing that they did. Another example is that in chapter 4 again Ralph decides to use the fire that the hunters and others were using for roasting the pig as a sign for help/hope on top of the mountain. The wrong things that the boys did are: in chapter 7 after not getting the pig, the hunters decided to play a game where they pretend the pig was Robert
