Over seventy students and ten teachers attended our Hunger Games party Thursday after school.
Students arrived ready and eager to bring their district to glory.

Students were divided into 12 districts and then THE GAMES BEGAN! There were 4 activities for districts to cycle through.

In the Cornucopia students competed for items that would help them survive.

Students made buttons.

Districts competed against each other in Jeopardy.

Students were blindfolded and had their teammates lead them (by words only) through a maze.

Two tributes reach the cornucopia at the same time.

Directing their fellow tribute.

We played the Hunger Games version of "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Shoot" which we called "Fire, Beast, Tribute, Shoot" to determine the victor in the game.

The victor!
Teachers drew names and students selected a parachute to see what their door prize would be.

Everyone enjoyed the Hunger Game themed cupcakes baked by Ms. Benton!

And for the final surprise, students found out we had reserved a nearby theater on March 23, opening day, for all of us to go watch the movie! Watch their reaction below-

  1. It was a wonderful party from beginning to end. Thanks so much, Mrs. Miller, for all the hard work and organizational skill you poured into making this such a success. I can't wait to see the movie.

  2. Your blog and your Hunger Games party is BEAST! (as my students say) They probably won't say it anymore Anyway, your party and the activities made my party look pitiful. I have been following your blog for a while and have enjoyed it thoroughly. Keep it coming!

  3. I'm sure your party was great and much appreciated by your students! This is the third year we had a Hunger Games party and we have built it up through the years. Thank you for your kind comments!
