This creative writing assignment is best used at or after the chapters 5-8 period. Students do not need to know the end of the story, but they do need to know a bit about how the Hunger Games (the event inside the book) work.
This writing assignment has students think of what other tributes there might be and write another Hunger Games (short) story. Their story would exist in the same universe as the Hunger Games books, but would use their own original characters and scenarios.
I also used Kidblog for this assignment. Students were able to share their stories and leave comments for other students' stories.
