A Cartographic Rendering of Panem

A Cartographic Rendering of Panem | Geography Education | Scoop.it

The Hunger Games fascination is at a high-water mark, and this dystopian Young Adult novel is set in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic, North America. While much of what was written isn’t geographically accurate, the capital and the districts that serve as its hinterland have numerous clues that connect with the current (and actual) geography of North America. Why not try to map it? While not an “accurate” project, this can be a fun way to infuse geography into an English class or vice versa. What would your map of Panem look like? How come?
