In The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien tells the story of Mr. Bilbo Baggins and his unexpected and rather uncomfortable adventure over the edge of the Wild. Rousted from a comfortable life in his hobbit hole by the wizard Gandalf, Bilbo joins a company of dwarves as they seek to reclaim their home far away in the Lonely Mountain. Along the journey, Bilbo has one adventure after another and meets many extraordinary creatures including goblins, trolls, elves, wargs, giant eagles, and even the fearsome dragon, Smaug. At the end of his adventures, Bilbo Baggins returns to life in his hobbit hole, but with an understanding that he has been forever changed by his journey “there and back again.” The Hobbit Student Study Guide increases the student’s vocabulary and reading comprehension by providing in-depth vocabulary study, comprehension questions, and enrichment activities.
The Hobbit Student Study Guide features teaching guidelines, an introduction to J.R.R. Tolkien, reading notes, vocabulary study, comprehension questions, quotations, discussion questions, enrichment activities, and an appendix containing space for book notes, notes on spelling and usage, the runic alphabet, and information on the importance of names in the story.
