Product Description
Since 1937, readers from around the world have fallen in love with the children’s fantasy novel, The Hobbit, written by J.R.R. Tolkien. Whether it is the memorable characters, the magnificent settings, or the writing style of Tolkien, there is so much to love about these books. From Bilbo Baggins’ quick wit and craftiness to the Trolls’ crude and violent ways, the characters in The Hobbit vary greatly from one another. For this assignment, students will choose a character to study and create a project to showcase their learning.

This resource guides students through conducting their own research report on a character (43 topics are listed). After choosing a topic to focus on, students are asked to conduct research using the Internet and books while following criteria. Next, students are asked to share their learning by creating a poster board, presentation board, or power point presentation. Artwork may also be created to further display learning. Finally, students present their work to the class.

Can be done in partners. Printable Evaluation forms included!

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a student-centered pedagogy in which students are challenged to actively learn about a subject for an extended period of time. It is a form of active learning or inquiry-based learning. Project-Based Learning is in contrast to paper-based, rote memorization, or teacher-led instruction that presents established facts. Please be aware of what you are purchasing.
