Students investigate and analyze geography used in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and compare and contrast geography, land, natural resources, power production, trade, etc. to that in the United States today and/or the ancient Roman Empire. Students use helpful website links to analyze maps of Panem, U.S., and Roman Empire, and then create a SEE, THINK, WONDER product (on PowerPoint, MovieMaker, a report, brochure, etc.) to convey what they SEE as similarities/differences, what they THINK the author wanted to portray or why she chose districts and their area of production, and what they WONDER about Panem districts/U.S./Roman Empire. A SAMPLE START with guiding questions and STUDENT EXAMPLE are included on last 13 slides. This also somewhat address the Common Core State Standard in which students compare a fictional place (Panem) to the real place in history (current U.S. or ancient Rome).
