This document randomly arranges 24 plot points/details in chapter 1 of The Hobbit. I have students work in small groups to arrange each detail in chronological order, using the novel for reference.
The item comes with a key.
I find this activity is useful in promoting active reading strategies. It is also great for recapping after assigned readings. Perhaps just as nicely, it gets the non-readers to engage in the text.
If you prefer an even more comprehensive resource to make teaching The Hobbit more convenient, consider this mega bundle, which includes a reading guide, an introductory PowerPoint, a set of 10 comprehension quizzes, a unit test, answer keys, and more.
