Hunger Games' Panem Maps
While is an official map for Panem that was made for the movies in collaboration with Suzanne Collins, the book's author, a while back, I still am not totally satisfied with it! Before this version came out, and even since then, there have been a lot of fan-made maps of Panem. These are my four favorites. Which do you think is most accurate?

I'm not very interested in the Hunger Games, but my students are. Perhaps I should have them try to create their own maps for the series we read.
@timeturnerjones what kind of research? I didn't even realize by looking at it, but it does look probably the cleanest of the 4. By the way, I think you accidentally tagged "livejournal" as if they were a Vingler lol
@onesmile They read up on what the US might look like after a natural disaster/set of wars, and then also took all the details from the books about what kind of land the districts had and then drew out this map. They really read up on it! Oops, let me fix that tag :)
@greggr That can be a really good exercise since they'll have to pay close attention to important, defining details, right?
@timeturnerjones Exactly. And even books that give a lot of details describing the world don't give every detail, so they'll have to be creative as well!
