Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins, is a popular choice for young adult literature. This dystopian novel has many layers to it showing the conflict man versus fate, young love, death/survival, and sacrifice. The unit I have constructed contains several lessons and activities focusing on topics such as characterization, themes, symbolism, while incorporating elements of poetry, reading strategies, and writing components. This unit has activities for characterization using a Facebook template or hands-on fun like learning how to tie a Figure Eight knot to help make themes in the book more tangible. This unit includes detailed lessons, rubrics, as well as printables for different activities!
