Teaching The Hunger Games with Buttons

Hunger Games Lessons with ButtonsTeachersPayTeachers is a marketplace with over 700,000 free and paid teaching resources. One of those resources uses buttons to teach a popular novel.

The Hunger Games has taken America by storm, and many elementary school teachers have their students read the novel. This kit, developed by teacher Tracee Orman, contains a variety of activities related to the novel for students to complete. It can be used to review the novel in a fun, creative way. Included are badges and buttons which mimic those worn by characters in the novel. They can be used to reenact scenes from the novel or as reward tokens for students. Also included are worksheets and blank templates, so students can make their own buttons and badges.

The badges and buttons are pre-made and can simply be printed and cut. However, a button maker would be a great tool to incorporate into making these! A button maker would ensure a more exact final product and cut down on time. Plus, students could learn how to operate an interesting new tool. You are able to use a button maker of any size with the templates. Buttons and badges are not the only uses for this kit. The templates can be cut and affixed onto magnets to put up in the classroom or can be printed on label paper to create stickers.

If you’re looking for a way to engage students and get them excited about reading, Tracee Orman’s Hunger Games Badges and Buttons Activity and Templates Kit seems like an excellent choice. Not only a great supplement to the novel, this kit is a fun way to introduce students to the art of making buttons and using a button maker.
