What is the key buzz word among students right now? That's right....The Hunger Games!! The books are amazing, the movie is amazing, and students are obsessed with them. I've taken this opportunity to use this obsession to help them practice their coordinate graphing skills.
This activity includes a blank coordinate graph, in which students label the quadrants, name and number the X and Y axis, and then graph a set of ordered pairs. When they are finished, the picture is of the famous mockingjay pin.
Loved the challenge of this. So many coordinate graphing activities are just time fillers, but the fractions really challenged some of my students. Plus, we did this during book fair week, so it worked great!!
Thank you for providing the graph paper as well as the coordinates. Some of the fractions printed a little funny. If you can not get the fractions to work maybe use decimals. (just a suggestion, I love it as it is)

I haven't used it yet, but am excited to have such a high-interest topic for a skill my sixth graders really need to master. Thanks

My students loved this. I also did not tell the kids what the graph would be and swore them to secrecy. Make sure to tell them it must be done in portrait mode if you use regular graph paper.

HA! I cut off part of the directions and did not tell the kids what they would be drawing. It was so fun watching the kids discover the design bit by bit. They loved this activity.
Great!! What a fun event to have!! I'm so glad you can use it. My students loved it. The teacher on the other team in my building gave it to her kids today, and I had several of them come up to me and tell me what a fun activity it is.
There are 62 ordered pairs. I teach sixth grade math, and it was a nice challenge for some of them. They were extremely eager to do it, and worked diligently on it just because it was The Hunger Games. The seventh grade teachers in my building used it with their students (who loved it), and I had someone comment that their advanced 4th graders loved it. Thank you for your question! I hope you enjoy the products!
