PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins describes a disturbing practice in which the people of Panem watch as young people kill one another on television. The citizens living in the Capitol, in particular, seem to get a lot of pleasure out of the tributes’ pain.

Is this idea -- thousands of people watching contests in which the participants are horribly injured or perhaps even killed -- contained to the world of fiction?

In this activity, students will analyze The Hunger Games in conjunction with two informational companion texts. Through these texts, students will discover both a historical precedent and modern analog for the Hunger Games by evaluating violence in spectator sports.

This resource contains an anticipatory inventory; directions for a paired discussion; a graphic organizer to structure comparison and contrast between a nonfiction informational text piece and the novel; and questions and activities to probe student understanding of an engaging and relevant topic.

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