Drew Central Students Viewed The Hobbit MovieDecember 18th, 2012 by Drew Central Schools
Drew Central Fourth Graders in Eva Arrington’s class have read the children’s classic The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. It was the fantasy epic of our time. Students and their parents met at the theater and viewed the movie as a group.
Students learned research skills when their curiosity led them to discovering the meaning and origin of runes. The students completed an in depth literature study using the novel and viewed the movie as a celebration. Upon returning to school, students wrote an opinion piece on which they liked best, the novel or the movie.
