Character mapping is a great way for students to look more deeply into the characters of a story. Even better, the completed character map will help students review important details that they may have forgotten after they have finished reading.
For this activity, students will select key characters from The Hunger Games and record physical traits and memorable moments that character had during the story. Students will also think of how they can relate to each character by picking out details and events.
