Product Description
Looking to challenge your students to master challenging vocabulary terms in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit? This crossword exercise features 11 difficult words from chapters 4 through 6 of the novel.

This is an especially enriching activity because it corresponds with a unit on dictionary usage and requires several sophisticated skillsets.

Benefits to Crossword Activities:

♦ Crosswords may be less intimidating learning and review tools. Students who are less receptive to practice tests, flashcards, or review sessions with teachers and peers may find crosswords an appealing alternative.

♦ Crosswords require students to differentiate among synonymous words and phrases, potentially broadening student exposure to more sophisticated vocabulary.

♦ Crosswords require students to spell words correctly, potentially helping to improve student spelling capabilities.

♦ Crosswords are associated with game-play, which caters to many students' playfully competitive natures.

♦ Crosswords cater to various learning styles. Visual learners typically have competent puzzle-solving skills and feel gratification upon successful completion of the activity. Auditory learners, on the other hand, tend to appreciate step-by-step reasoning and therefore benefit from the sequential steps of finishing crosswords.

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.
