The writers of this blog post suggest a lesson in which students use "The Hunger Games" to learn about genetically engineered organisms. To begin, students should discuss the hybrid bird -- the jabberjay -- featured in the popular book series and film. Students then should work in groups to study and present their research on "do it yourself" biology and other topics. Students also can take the lesson further by developing plans for their own genetically modified organisms.
