The Hobbit is the story of Bilbo Baggins - a happy, sedentary sort of hobbit, leading a comfortable, predictable life filled with no wild adventures or daring risks - that is, until Gandalf comes to his door.
This literature unit explores the issues of a fantasy world full of implausible, wonderful, memorable characters with whom readers can often identify.
Perhaps we, like Bilbo Baggins can learn to suspend what we are accustomed to doing and believing and enter a 'world of adventure' through vocabulary activities, quizzes, hands-on-projects and cooperative learning activities.
Research ideas and other activities include a discussion of prejudice, map making skills and understanding a family tree.
