One of the little girls gets really emotional and tries to stop the plan. The last major similarities between both is the work that has to happen. In Lord of the Flies Ralph and Piggy are trying to build shelters for the littluns and no one else is helping. They also assign the choir boys to watch the fire and they don't do their work.
