Please wrap up The Hunger Games this week if you haven’t already finished reading the book.
We will talk about Chapter 1 and 15 questions and discuss a few things.
Now that we know Katniss; think of 2 examples/choices that she makes that prove she would never have left and ran away with Gale. Explain the choice and then explain how it proves Katniss never would have ran away with Gale.
There must have been some mistake. This can’t be happening. Prim was one slip of paper in thousands! Her chances of being chosen so remote that I’d not even bothered to worry about her. Hadn’t I done everything? Taken the tesserae, refused to let her do the same? One slip. One slip in thousands. The odds has been entirely in her favour. But it hadn’t mattered.
What is IRONIC about the saying; “May the odds be ever in your favour?”
What does the story of the girl (now an Avox) in the woods tell us about Panem?
“I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun” (Collins 121).

It is a rollercoaster ride for her emotionally!
We are going to explore that ride with Katniss!

The branch holding the trackerjacker’s is dropped on Peeta and his friends…
Who saves Katniss’s life in this chapter?
Who else save’s Katniss’s life in this chapter?
