Chapter 7 to 12 Essay Questions

1.  Why are the “Tributes” given stylist and dressed so elaborately for the opening ceremony?  Does this ceremony remind you of events in our world, either past or present?  Compare those ceremonies in real life to the one in the story.

2. Why do you think fire is an appropriate symbol for Katniss?

3.  Before the Games start, Peeta tell Katniss, “…I want to die as myself…I don’t want them to change me in the there.  Turn me into some kind of monster that I’m not.”  What does this tell you about Peeta?  What does he fear more than death?

4.  Do you think the glamorization of the Games and the treatments of its stars before they are sent off to die is a reflection of anything in our modern society?

What do you win if you get all of the answers right?  The satisfaction of knowing you are… RIGHT!  It’s not to late to join Kris in the Read Along.  Click on the owl and it will take you right to her Read Along.  Keep the pages turning!

Just another girl who loves to read and then read some more and wants to meet others like me.
  • For question number one, the ceremony reminds me of the Olympics. I say this because this is the one thing that everyone (even though the Olympics reaches much further than just our country) watches at one time.

    • I was thinking the same thing too! Especially the way the athletes circle around the track in costumes representing their country.

      BTW, I have been trying to comment on your site today and it won’t post for some reason. Just wanted you to know. 🙂

  • I can’t really answer the questions because my mind isn’t there. BUT I love reading your reactions as you read so I had to stop in.

    • Just finished the book and I was was shocked and surprised by every single page I turned. Good book!
