Hunger Games Challenge

The Challenge

  • How did North America become Panem, the post-apocalyptic world of The Hunger Games?
  • How can we avoid a similar path in our world?

Students who demonstrate their academic prowess by answering these questions will have a chance to win big!

ConnectEd Studios and Educurious have joined forces to create an exciting project that applies the The Hunger Games premise to real-world dilemmas. Fully loaded, the project contains Common Core aligned lesson plans, media resources, and performance tasks, ready to be deployed by educators. It’s all available on ConnectEd Studios.
