Activity Overview


Writers often look to historical events to develop relatable and thought-provoking storylines. When teaching The Hunger Games, the book has many correlations and similarities to events in history. In this activity, students will choose three events in the book, and will show how the event in the book relates to an event in history. It may be helpful for students to utilize the internet or school library for additional historical research, if such resources are available. In the example below, a parallel is drawn between the gladiatorial matches of ancient Rome, and the spectacle of the Hunger Games.
