This file includes 3 lessons/activities that help students understand how to write effective instructions. The instructions the students will be writing coincide with the survival skills the tributes need to survive during the games. Students start by analyzing other instructions to figure out what is helpful to a reader. They then practice finding the most important information in paragraphs and writing them in instruction format. The final project is a how to flyer about an important survival skill. Students choose a skill from the options provided and create a flyer which includes both pictures and instructions. The best chapters to use the lessons with are also identified on worksheets. These are great ways to combine a writing unit to a novel. Lessons created by Kimberly Stewart.
