Hunger Games - Chapter 4


Chapter 4 (p. 48-60)

Peeta and Katniss help Haymitch back to his room and Peeta sends Katniss away to take care of Haymitch himself. This, coupled with his actions at breakfast and when entering the Capitol, lead Katniss to perceive him as a threat. At breakfast, a deal is made with Haymitch to help them in exchange for not interfering with his drinking. We learn that Katniss has skill at throwing knives.

  3. Why does Katniss detest Haymitch?
  4. What deal does Haymitch make with the tributes?
  5. What are Haymitch’s first words of advice?

  1. 1- that is because Peeta is being nice so later in the Hunger games he might be able to attack Katniss and kill when she least expects it.

    2- Katniss put up a wall between her and her mother because she will not forgive her for leaving her and Prim.

    3- Katniss detest Haymitch because he is a drunk and has to be there instructor for the hunger games and Haymitch is not really nice.

    4- The deal that Haymitch gives to Peeta and Katniss is that if do not destroy my achool I will help you in the hunger games.

    The first words that come out Haymitch's mouth is to "Stay Alive". Also to do what ever the stylist whant to do to you.

  3. 1 It will make her less willing to kill him.

    2 Because she never went to parenting school.

    3 Haymitch is a drug addict and who can trust them? They lose their minds!

    4 If they stop interfering with his drinking he will stay sober enough to coach them.

    5 To stay alive and do whatever it takes to do so.

    Haymitch says DONT do drugs
