Product Description
Writers do not work in a vacuum. Instead, they are influenced by literature written by generations of writers before them, as well as current events and trends.

In The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins takes a fresh look at several interesting ideas -- like having your life or death decided by lottery and being hunted by other people -- that are explored in older works of fiction also. In this activity, students will read Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” (1948) and Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game” (1924) to see where some of the inspiration for The Hunger Games may have come from and how different authors treat similar themes.

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: This resource includes the complete activities of “The Hunger Games and Companion Text: The Chosen One” and “The Hunger Games and Companion Text: Becoming the Hunted” from my TPT Store PLUS additional analysis questions.
