PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: Novel Study with Questions, Projects, and Activities

Are you on the hunt for a fully integrated, creative, and comprehensive novel study on The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien?

This huge package of resources contains everything you need to teach a complete novel study on The Hobbit. Detailed comprehension questions, vocabulary words, foldables, story element analysis, and engaging projects are all included in this resource package. All activities are classroom tested and include creative handouts, detailed instructions, templates, and rubrics! Very little teacher prep is needed – simply print and teach!

Resources included in this package can be easily aligned to the common core.

This creative and engaging package includes the following:

Novel Study Questions and Vocabulary: A detailed set of vocabulary and questions for the novel.

Response Journal Questions: A set of creative questions for students to respond to. May be used to focus students at the start of class, for students to reflect on post-reading, for bonus writing activities, etc…

Character Detail Foldable Library Pockets: Students create a library pocket style foldable describing the different characters in the novel. Students cut out, fold, and glue the library pocket together. Students then describe each character on the included lined paper sheet, and insert the sheet into the library pocket. The square with the character’s name gets glued on the front, with a student illustration of character. Students love this activity because it is hands on and different. Teachers love this activity because the completed library pockets are both beautiful and informative. A library pocket template for each of the main characters is included! A blank template is also included!

Create a Character Project: Students reflect on Tolkien’s characters and create a new one of their own. Students must write about and illustrate their characters. This engaging creative writing activity makes a beautiful classroom display!

Live News Broadcast Project: Use this as a final project for the unit, to help students reflect on their learning! Student groups create a live news broadcast show for the novel, including character interviews, commercials, etc. Students love getting dressed in costume and presenting for their classmates!

Elements of Literature Notes: No novel study is complete without information on the Elements of Literature. Several pages of information relating to each element (conflict, foreshadowing, etc.) are organized into an easy to read table. A blank student version is included. These notes can be applied to ANY novel or short story!

Movie Poster Project: Students create full color movie posters for the novel! Students must choose famous actors to play each of the important roles, and write paragraphs explaining their choices. These look fantastic on the classroom wall!

Character Table: Students use this table to illustrate and describe different characters in the novel. As they read through the novel, students use the table to record important information about each character. There is also space for students to draw a picture of each character. A great tool for students to use to help keep all the characters straight!
