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.
