If you can get these in order, then you really know what the book is about. This is an excellent exercise. 

In chapter one, Old Major prophesies a future rebellion in view of their horrible lot in life (7). He riles up the animals in a powerful speech. At the end of the chapter, he dies (3). 

In chapter two, Jones gets drunk and forgets to feed the animals (4). This confirms for the animals that Jones and other humans do not care.  So the animals rebel (1). After a successful rebellion, they make a fire and place all their old equipment of enslavement into it.  They also rename the farm - Animal Farm (2). Finally, they create animalism (6), which the pigs were thinking about.  

In chapter four, Jones comes back to retake the farm, but he is unsuccessful (5), as the animals fight back. This is another big victory for the animals. 

Here is the order: 7, 3, 4, 1, 2, 6, 5.
