Hunger Games 2 (Catching Fire) Student Work Booklet

Hunger Games 2 (Catching Fire) Student Work Booklet

This booklet has been designed as part of a unit of work on Catching Fire (the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy). It includes activities about characters, the setting and language features which students are to complete as they read the novel. There are also questions about the events/themes/character's perspectives et cetera for each chapter. This is all in preparation for a creative writing assessment where students take what they have learned to create two or three diary entries which provide insight into a minor character from the novel. In doing so they must reveal the personality of their character through what they see, think, feel, hope for and fear. Students were assessed on how purposefully they shaped their representations of people, places, events and concepts in the novel.

In this pack is a PDF copy of the article (which is still available online) and linked questions suitable and easily adaptable for all KS2.
