Why does Katniss see a green and silver moth on her hand when she returns to the cave? Why did Suzanne Collins choose May 8th for Katniss's birthday? And what do the silver parachutes represent?
These are some of the things my students and I wondered while reading The Hunger Games. I created several handouts for mini-research projects that students can do as group or individual activities. I also included my own research findings with several surprising conclusions!
In all, this document has 12 pages of handouts for students and 13 pages of research findings, including a 4-page comprehensive list of symbolism of various plants in literature.
You are certain to have lively class discussions and your students will be amazed at what they find, all while learning.
