Hunger Games - A New Drama Circle

We didn't officially read The Hunger Games as a novel study this year, but almost half my class has read it this year during independent reading, and ALL of them have seen the movie, so I thought it would be fun to make a Hunger Games Drama Circle for them.

A few weeks ago I was missing quite a few students, it was a Friday afternoon, and the weather was beautiful. We spent our afternoon outside doing a few of my drama circles ... and they had a blast!  They begged me to make a few more.  I have also had quite a few requests from my followers to make more drama circles.  So here's my first new one.  You can click HERE or on the picture to preview it.  Right now all my drama circles are still only $2.00.  Just in case you have a few on your wish list,  I wanted to warn you that the price will be increasing a bit this summer.

As always, if you think you could use this in your classroom, I would like to send a free copy to the first three people to leave a comment with their email address.

Happy Tuesday, and may the odds be ever in your favor!

  6. We just taught The Hunger Games for the first time this year as a class novel-my kids would have LOVED doing this! Maybe I can squeeze it in as an end of the year fun activity... :)

    1. I've been doing drama circles for a few years now. My students LOVE them! They are usually pretty rough the first time through, but the instant the last card is read, they are begging to do it again. So much fun!
