The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Lesson Plans by Becky Harvey

The Hunger Games is the first volume in a trilogy of adventure novels. It follows a teenager, Katniss Everdeen, as she fights to survive in a dystopian, futuristic America. The country has been broken into twelve districts, heavily taxed by the wealthy and harsh Capitol. Every year, the Capitol holds a death-match between child tributes, two from each district. Katniss, a strong-willed and capable teenager, volunteers to take her younger sister’s place. Katniss goes through the mind-numbingly violent game of murder with her male counterpart, Peeta. They manipulate the game by faking a romance, and out-maneuver their opponents and Capitol politicians to become joint winners of the Hunger Games.

Storyboard Description

Hunger Games characters point of view

Storyboard Text

  • Prim is scared to tears over the thought of being called in the Reaping. When Katniss takes her place, she is overwhelmed. She is relieved, but scared for her sister's safety. She might even feel guilt. Fear is probably her greatest emotion.
  • Haymitch is a past winner which means he has seen all of the horrors of the "games." He has had to kill other humans and his alcoholism seems to show that he thinks the games are despicable. He is numb.
  • President Snow is emotionless over the "games" and the Reaping that chooses its victims. He feels it is necessary to maintain order in the Districts. He sees it also as entertainment. He is calm and collected.
