We Remember on Memorial Day

We Remember... from www.hungergameslessons.com

In chapter 8 of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, the rebels come up with a series of propos--propaganda videos--to infiltrate the Capitol's air waves. One of the themes is for a series of "We Remember" propos that pay homage to the fallen tributes. Here's some trivia: Which character in Mockingjay came up with this idea? (See the end of this post for the answer.)

Make a Video: If you have access to technology, have your students make "We Remember" videos for the characters who have lost their lives. This project can be done with any of the three novels in The Hunger Games trilogy. For a more detailed activity with handouts, you can download my Rebel Propos lesson. Also, here is an example of a "We Remember" video for Rue.

Writing Prompt: If you don't have access to technology, have your students write a script for a "We Remember" video. What would the narrator say about that tribute? Make sure they include the tribute's name, district, and details about that person. Some details will force the student to be creative since there may not be sufficient material from the text.
