Shared This Week: ‘The Hunger Games’ Edition
Posted by: Edmodo
For the thousands of Edmodo educators who are teaching The Hunger Games in school (and, from the looks of it, standing in line at the theater) we thought we’d share a few of the top Hunger Games resources that have been shared in Edmodo in the past week. Feel free to suggest your own ideas and resources in the comments below!
May the odds be ever in your favor.
Hunger Games Training: ‘Throughout this activity you will live the life of a tribute selected in the reaping for the Hunger Games. You will ride to the Capitol on the train with your fellow tribute, Jordan. After arriving, you will live the life (however short it may be) of a Tribute in Panem: undergoing a Capitol-style makeover, attend the Opening Ceremony for the Hunger Games, train with your mentor (Azar) and the Game Makers, attend a private training session to be rated, interviewed, and thrown into the arena where you will have a one in twenty-four chance of coming out alive”
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: In this simulation from Scholastic, students may find out if they are ready for the Hunger Games through this interactive site that tests students’ abilities and to determine if they are able to survive the real thing. Remember, there is only one path to survival.
Teaching the Hunger Games: This blog post from the NY Times provides resources and lesson plans for teaching The Hunger Games.
