The Hobbit, Body Biography Bundle For Print and Digital is filled with all you need to teach and promote the amazing characters from the novel and blockbuster film. Your students will experience the unique approach of using a collaborative poster, J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel, The Hobbit, textual evidence, research, a character study, and the body biography project! Did your students watch the film instead? No problem, this characterization study can still be done!
This project can be used any time of the year. The project bundle includes 7 characters from The Hobbit. Give your students a relevant and modern experience while promoting the 4 C’s, and achievement. Leave the body biographies up all year long! I adapted the body biography concept to align with citing textual evidence, character traits, research, and inference skills.
