The Hunger Games Lesson Plan

  1. 1

    Why does Katniss location flowers on Rue’s body?

    (4 minutes.)

    She wishes to thwart the Capitol’s dehumanization of tributes. Watching kids combat to the death isn’t rather as amusing if you empathize with them, and Katniss’s actions advise the audiences that Rue was simply a little woman whose death deserves to be mourned.The flowers are an act of defiance, and the last kind thing she can do for Rue.

  2. 2

    Why does District 11 send bread to Katniss? What is substantial about this gesture?

    (4 minutes.)

    District 11 sent the bread in Rue’s memory. They wanted to thank Katniss for helping her endure and showing her compassion in her passing away moments. It’s a significant gesture – the people of District 11 are bad, and the bread was surely costly to send. It signifies meaningful interaction in between the Districts, in direct defiance of the Capitol.

  3. 3

    Why did the Gamemakers change the guidelines to allow 2 tributes from the very same district to win?

    (3 minutes.)

    There are just two pairs of Homages from the very same District left: Peeta and Katniss, and Cato and Clove. We do not see much of the latter set, so it’s possible they had an amazing story that Capitol audiences were following. Most likely, however, the rule change was entirely to play up the Katniss/Peeta “romance.” It makes an alliance in between them not just possible, however the most intelligent method. The “love” angle, at least to the Gamemakers, adds an entertaining brand-new component to the 74th Hunger Games. It might make the audience more purchased Katniss and Peeta as “characters.”

  4. 4

    Why does the guideline modification force Peeta and Katniss to be allies?

    (3 minutes.)

    If Peeta and Katniss try to kill each other, they will be less charming to the audience, and therefore the sponsors. In addition, if either won and needed to go back to District 12 after having allowed the other to pass away (and knowing they had the alternative to collaborate rather), it would be a source of pity for the remainder of the survivor’s life. To team up is the very best decision both PR-wise and strategy-wise. It would likewise mean one less victim to the Capitol.

  5. 5

    Why might it be significant that Katniss does rule out herself a healer, like her mother or sibling?

    (5 minutes.)

    Katniss is both a fighter and a schemer, however she is not a carer. She will work and battle tirelessly for those she likes, but she doesn’t have the essential qualities to nurse someone back to health. This makes her a well-rounded protagonist. Talk about how this also defies stereotypes about female characters, who are frequently relegated to the position of nurturer.
