Catching Fire "What If" Journal Discussion Prompts (Book 2 in The Hunger Games Trilogy)
"What if President Snow had gone to Peeta first and told him about Katniss and Gale’s kiss? How would Peeta react?"
"What if Katniss hadn’t stepped in while Gale was being whipped? Would Gale have lived? Would Peeta have stopped it? Haymitch? How would things have been different between Katniss and Peeta? Or Gale?"
"What if President Snow really was a snake?" (Regarding the simile on page 18)
These are just a small sample of the journal writing or discussion prompts to trigger your students' critical and creative thinking skills. You can also use the questions as a review of the novel or an differentiated assessment to check reading comprehension.
The prompts are divided into three parts:
