A quick yet engaging way to get your students excited to read the second book in Suzanne Collins's amazing Hunger Games Trilogy.
This activity asks students to write what they think is going to happen in the 3rd Quarter Quell, using the major words from the book. The added "twist" is that their prediction has to add up to $7.50. Key vocabulary words are worth $0.25, other important words are worth $0.10, and all other words are worth $0.05.
Watch in amazement as even your reluctant writers write more than you'd ever expect them to with excitement as they try to reach the targeted amount.
