Product Description
The idea of people hunting other people is certainly one of the most disturbing aspects of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Collins, however, is far from the first author to explore this disconcerting concept. The 1924 short story “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell is considered to be one of the most influential pieces of literature to explore this theme.

In this activity, students will use textual evidence to compare the theme of people being hunted by other people across two texts: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell. Students will not only be exploring an engaging theme (people being hunted by other people), but they will also be practicing analyzing companion texts from different literary types (a novel and a short story).

The Hunger Games is an incredibly popular and powerful young adult novel. Using it in your classroom can give you the opportunity to explore many important themes and topics while tapping into your students’ interests.

This activity includes both a student assignment handout and an answer key.

NOTE: Looking for more? This activity can also be found in my “The Hunger Games and Influential Texts” resource in my TPT Store, where it is joined by analysis of another related short story.
