In several chapters of The Hobbit, Bilbo and his companions have encounters with other races or species A creative writing project for students can be to look at these encounters from the viewpoint of the villains. How would the story be told by the wargs who were victimized with burning pine cones? This activity lets students be creative, but it also requires them to go back to the individual chapters to be sure that “their” version of the story is predicated upon the facts as presented by Tolkien.
The student handout gives students a variety of choices for writing. Examples of writing ideas are included in the Teacher Instructions along with a scoring rubric.
Common Core Writing and Language Standards are also included.
