May the odds be ever in your favor

This week in Young Adult Literature we are studying dystopia literature, including The Giver and The Hunger Games. I read The Hunger Games a few weeks ago and over spring break I took the time to read the other two books of the series, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. I could not put the books down. I would think- I'll just read one more chapter, and then the next thing I knew it was four a.m. and I had a finished book. I thought to myself this is the kind of book I would want to teach in my class someday. Something exciting that really keeps the students attention. I have come across various hunger games activities to use in the classroom on Pinterest but today after typing "The Hunger Games lesson plans" into the Google search bar I received countless helpful resources. One of the more helpful websites that I found is Hunger Games Lessons. This website not only gives rationale for teaching the hunger games but also provides teacher examples and free downloads.

 If you ever decide to teach The Hunger Games in your classroom this website might come in handy!

"Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!"



  1. I read all 3 Hunger Game Novels and I'd say that teaching the Hunger Games would definitely be worthwhile in a classroom. I thought the Hunger Games Lessons website was really interesting. I enjoyed reading the students responses especially the youth who wrote about why Katniss would date him. I also liked the idea of hosting a Hunger Games event.

  2. Nice! I can use these for my learning log!
