Activity Overview

Many Hunger Games characters went through or observed traumatic events, but each had a perspective during their experiences. Their perspective contributed to the actions they may have taken both in the short term and later in the story. For example, President Snow viewed the death of Rue differently than Katniss or Rue’s parents did.

In this activity, students will choose an event from the book and then select three characters from whose viewpoint they can express the event. Consider using the point of view from the following characters: Katniss, Prim, Gale, Peeta, Haymitch, Effie, Cinna, President Snow, Rue, Cato, or Foxface.

Point of View Activity
Create a story that utilizes the three narrative points of view: first person, third person omniscient, and third person limited. Choose one moment or event in your narrative and write it from each point of view below each cell. Then, using the scenes and characters in the Storyboard Creator, depict the distinct differences that appear in each point of view. Please be sure to make your scenes eye-catching and neat, and proofread your written work.

Three Points of View
The narrative uses the three points of view accurately, and shows depth and creativity beyond simply changing the pronouns. The first person narration shows intimacy and credibility. The third person omniscient expresses both the thoughts of the character and details outside of the character's perspective. The third person limited narration depicts the event from a much more narrow scope. Each point of view provides new and interesting information on the event and shows time, effort, and careful planning.
The narrative uses the three points of view accurately, but mainly just focuses on changing the pronouns rather than delving into the nuances of the different narrations. The storyboard as a whole shows time, effort, and planning, but it lacks sophistication and depth.
The narrative may attempt to depict three points of view, but may be incorrect or too limited. Pronouns may be confused or not used correctly. The narrative is almost exactly the same in each cell, or it may not make sense.
Artistic Depictions
The art chosen to depict the scenes is appropriate and neat. Time and care is taken to ensure that scenes are eye-catching and creative.
The art chosen to depict the scenes is appropriate but may seem rushed. Some art may be haphazardly placed and lack of attention to detail is noticeable.
The art chosen to depict the scenes is inappropriate or too limited. Some scenes may have been left blank.
English Conventions
Ideas are organized. There are few or no grammatical, mechanical, or spelling errors.
Ideas are mostly organized. There are some grammatical, mechanical, or spelling errors.
Ideas may be disorganized or misplaced. Lack of control over grammar, mechanics, and spelling reflect a lack of proofreading.
