The Frazier History Museum is pleased to present The Hunger Games: The Exhibition which celebrates the blockbuster The Hunger Games franchise and Katniss’s epic journey like never before. This dynamic exploration of the art, science, pageantry and history of the world of Panem features iconic costumes, props, and set recreations that highlight the technological wizardry and amazing artistry that brought this world to life. High-tech, hands-on interactives let you dive into exciting behind-the-scenes content, engage deeply with the world of the films, and discover a whole new side of the stories that took the world by storm.

During this engaging and interactive professional development teachers will . . .

  • Work with highly-respected veteran educator Jana Kirchner, Ph.D to explore ways to utilize The Hunger Games series to engage 4th – 8th grade students in English and/or Social Studies classrooms
  • Analyze sample lessons from three teaching modules through activities related to these questions: How does the geography of a country affect the lives of its citizens? How do governments use media to affect citizens? How does a person become a hero?
  • Explore ways to integrate themes from The Hunger Games series and exhibition into other content areas including Math, Science and the Arts
  • Experience The Hunger Games: The Exhibition

The cost is $7.50 per teacher. The remaining portion of the program fee has been provided by a grant through the Frazier Museum’s “Bridge to History” Project, generously funded by LG&E/KU Community Investment Fund and the UPS Foundation.
