Description

The students need to read The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, and then they will have an art project for this lesson. They will draw a picture of the different habitats that are mentioned in the book on cardstock. They will also write out their descriptions on notebook paper and include them in a plastic notebook.

Goals

To read and gather information about descriptions of different settings such as the habitats of the different characters
To draw the habitats from the descriptions they read

Materials Needed

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
Cardstock - White for their drawings
Pencils and erasers
Colored pencils or markers
Notebook paper for their written descriptions
Three-ring plastic notebook

Procedure

First, the students will read The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. As they read, they need to pay attention to the descriptions of the different habits of the Hobbit, dwarfs, Gandalf, trolls, and the goblins. Each time they read a description, they need to write down the main facts. Then, they are to take plain paper and draw a rough draft of each character's habitat. They need to use one sheet of paper for each habitat. When they have completed that project, they can draw their final copies on white cardstock. Finally, they need to write a good copy of their written descriptions so they can include the descriptions of each character's habitat. They will put their descriptions and their drawings in a plastic three-ring notebook and submit them to you for grading.

Grading

You can grade them on their accuracy of their written descriptions and on their drawings they made from the descriptions. You can also grade them on spelling, sentence structure, paragraph structure, grammar, and punctuation.
