Hunger Games: A Map of the Fictional Panem | History and Social Studies Education |

As a former children's librarian, this is the perfect merger of some of my interests. The Hunger Games, a Young Adult dystopian novel (movie coming soon) takes place in a post-WWIII North America with 13 districts noted for particular resources. For example, district 4 specialized in fishing and district 12's economy centered on coal. For middle schools that teach integrate units with social studies and English, this would be a very engaging, current connection.
