Allapattah Flats seventh graders prefer the book to the movie

Students in Crystal Carrington and Bridget Valinote’s seventh grade classes were  excited to attend a field trip to Rave Cinema to see the new movie The Hunger Games. Students had just finished reading the book in their reading class, so they were able to extend their learning by comparing and contrasting elements of the book to the movie.  The votes are in that the book was better than the movie and gave so much more detail!  Students are now very motivated to read the sequel Catching Fire.
