This resource on the Hunger Games includes a variety of “children” or parts to supplement the reading and understanding of the popular series of post apocalyptic, dystopian future novels. The first “child” of the resource asks students to compare the diets of the district citizens with the Capitol citizens and draw conclusions about each. While these worksheets are specific to the texts, the general theme of World Hunger can be discussed and the connection can be examined. The second “child” offers a blog on the Hunger Games and Urban Education. Links to engage the educator are provided for deeper understanding and extension. Another link is provided to the Scholastic website and their interactive computer game on the Hunger Games, simulating the role of tribute in the games. The last “child” is a lesson plan on prewriting, with the guiding question being, “How can ideas be created, articulated, and organized in order to prepare for a paper draft?” While the topic for this pre-write is Hunger Games, the lesson will be usable for any text. A rubric is included for this resource as well.
The lesson is very interactive and allows students to utilize different resources. Each student having access to a computer is key and because of it, it allows students to benefit from blogging, creating graphics, online concept maps, etc. The connection between the book and world hunger also gives students practice with relating theses within a text to real issues.
