In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games," a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed.

4.5 Hunger Games Series
I think that you could read this book with your 6th graders. Especially, during whole group. It will keep both the girls and boys entertained. It would be a good way to introduce the students to different types of fiction. In this case Dystopian.

This is a book I would use in a sixth grade classroom. It would be a great book to keep the students engaged and even watch the movies afterward to note the differences. Further, the Hunger Games could be utilized for an analysis of characterization, symbolization, and plot structure. It could be...
