What educators are saying

Excellent for comparing/contrasting the book with the movie and keeping the kids engaged and learning (versus just watching the movie).


"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" Movie vs. The Novel Common Core Activities

The Catching Fire movie is almost here! If you plan to take your students to see it OR wish to give them a homework or extra credit assignment, this download has numerous activities that are ready to go right now! My packet is aligned with the Common Core State Standards, so it will be easy to justify the lessons, as well. NOTE: there are at least five exercises/handouts that can be done WITHOUT watching the movie.

Includes multiple activities that involve comparisons to the book, and those in which they analyze the movie itself. I will be updating it after the movie and the DVD are released to provide you extras for no additional cost.

Currently, this product is NOT included in my Catching Fire Teaching Unit digital download because of space restrictions.
