The Hunger Games Activity Pack: 8 No-Prep ELA Activities
In this packet, you'll find eight fun activities to complement any unit on The Hunger Games.
The Open Mind Posters: Students fill in posters of Katniss and Peeta with their thoughts, motivations, relationships, etc.
Facebook Profile: Students create Katniss Everdeen’s Facebook page.
Tweets: Students write tweets from the perspective of one of the key characters, discussing recent events in the book.
Pen Pal: Students write letters from a character from Panem to a student at their school.
Cast the Movie: Since The Hunger Games is already a hugely popular movie, students are asked to cast a new version entirely out of characters from other books they have read.
Ipod Playlist: Students choose four songs that a character might have chosen to listen to during recent events in the text, and explain their choices.
Leave a Message: In this partner activity, students discuss what message some character would choose to leave on Katniss Everdeen’s voicemail, based on recent events in the text.
Comic Book Version: For this activity, students create a three panel comic strip based on the recent reading.
This packet contains adapted versions of some of my other products. You will find similar material or activity formatting in it if you have already purchased my Open Mind Posters, 15 Discussion Warm-Ups, or Canterbury Tales Activity Race. The Into the Wild Unit Activities, The Hobbit Unit Activities, and The Harry Potter unit activities are also adapted versions of similar activities. I am trying to cater to teachers who would like my more generally formatted products specially tailored to individual novels, but please don't accidentally purchase two of a very similar product. Thanks!
