Transcript: The Hobbit Summary Connections with the book 1. Gorilla 2. Ape Man 3. Homo Erectus 4. Neanderthal 5. Homo Heidelbergensis 6. Homo Sapien. This applies to the Hobbit because of the Hobbit like creatures that archaeologists have discovered in Indonesia. Homo floresiensis. Our Genus Homo, started. Slowly and gradually genetic mutations led this species to another and to antoher. Homo floresiensis was part of this cycle. He came after Homo ergaster and still evolution was on its way. Slowly homo sapiens came to the picture and out of all the species in the genus homo, we are the most perfected. It is definitely biology as this whole process is about how life evolves and life changes, and we are part of this history, just as is any of these species are. Rohan Suresh Answers The Hobbit By: J.R.R Tolkien Natural Selection is a process of evolution that was derived by Charles Darwin. He had traveled on the Beagle which was his ship and over his journey he found some interesting species of finches and turtles. This all brought him to the theory of natural selection. A genetic mutation may occur in an organism and if it is beneficial towards the organism, in terms of survival and reproduction, that new species will thrive as the old sowly dies away from existence. This connects with the book because the hobbit and homo floresiensis have very similar physical and mental traits. Most importantly they are both very short. Both are about a meter in height, about the half of a human being. They both were great with stones and rocks. Bilbo Baggins in the novel could throw a stone accurately at almost anything. The homo floresiensis would hunt for their food with stones and stone tools. It is speculated that they may have used fire and in the book, Bilbo would dread anything that wasn't cooked. They both also lived in very small communities. The Hobbits live together in the shire and there are barely any hobbits out of the shire. Homo Floresiensis were very similar as they were found in a small community of seven individuals in Flores, Indonesia. J.R.R Tolkien's dimuitive characters were very similar to the actual living creatures. I actually loved this book. It was fantastic. It kept me on my toes and it took my breath away. I like the adventure books and this suited my taste in every way. It gave me adventure, fantasy, suspense, rivalry, comedy and much much more. If I had to say one bad thing about it, it would be the length of the story as it was very long. It had a lot of plot twists and so on and so forth. But overall I would have to give it 4.5 stars out of 5 and I highly recommend this book to anybody who wants an adventure. Natural Selection Evolution Conclusions Book Critique Now being made into an epic movie trilogy Natural Selection "The Hobbit" is about a hobbit of Bag-End, named Bilbo Baggins and he is an ordinary simple hobbit who doesn't care for adventures. But that is all about to change with thirteen dwarves and a Great wizard named Gandalf. This Company requests for Bilbo's assistance to help reclaim the dwarves' lost treasure from the Evil Dragon Smaug. On their journey they confront hostile trolls, disgusting goblins, good and bad elves, and a magic ring of invisibility.Finally they reach the Lonely Mountain where Smaug resides with the treasure. Will they survive? The scientific concept that I am focusing on, is the concept of evolution. I am doing this because recent studies have shown that there was a hobbit like creature before humans. They are in fact in the Genus Homo, which is the genus that us humans are a part of. Species evolve to make more perfected beings than before, in terms of survival and intellectual standards. This means that this hobbit like creature, whose scientifically correct name, is homo floresiensis, was part of our ancestry. This species played a part in evolution in the making of us homo sapiens, as they and many others went through the process of natural selection. The Hobbit Movie Trailer Work Cited How does this apply to the Hobbit? Natural Selection is a concept of evolution derived by the great Charles Darwin. Natural Selection is when there is a certain genetic mutation in an organism that helps them adapt to their environment and reproduce. They will then thrive unlike the old organism that will probably go extinct due to this new organism. Charles Darwin wrote about this theory in 1859 in his published book, "Origin of Species". He came across the idea on his famous voyages on the Beagle. He once found thirteen different finches with different beaks that helped them adapt in the environment that they were in. They were all on the same island. Humans went through this process as well. The Hobbit Summary "Homo Floresiensis." Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History . 16 Jan. 2013. Smithsonian. <>.

Transcript: The Hobbit. Hi, my name is Bilbo Baggins I used to be an quiet and ordinary hobbit until one wizard named... So I invited him over for tea after all its not everyday you run into a wizard. So when tea time came I didn't see Gandalf at the door I saw dwarfs! So I ended up on this crazy adventure.....without my pocket handkerchief >:( The journey. So me and the dwarfs and Gandalf were caught in a horrible storm. We went to rest in a cave and the next thing I know we are captured by goblins! All except Gandalf of course. So me and the dwarfs were captured by goblins and then we were all of a sudden surrounded by a bunch of goblins and one big goblin. I thought we were goners, but then Gandalf came in and killed the great goblin! But I unfortunately got separated from the group :( But before I got captured by the goblins we had a short rest with Elroen Gandalfs friend Anyways I got separated from the group and I saw a ring. However this was no ordinary ring when I put it on I was invisible! So on my way down a cave (using my ring to avoid the goblins of course) I met a creepy creature named Gollum. Gollum is a very clever old hobbit and he knew a way out but the only way he was going to tell me is if we had a riddle fight. Anyways I won the riddle fight by asking "whats in my pocket" which isn't even a real riddle but he fell for it at first but then he was outraged because he thought I had his ring (which was the ring I saw earlier) so I put it on and he thought I was heading towards the exit. And to my luck (and the help of the ring) he led me to the exit. so I got reunited with my friends and we were running away from the goblins but we would not last forever. It seemed hopeless but then giant eagles came and helped us and flew us away. We stayed in the hospitality of the eagles for awhile but eventually we had to leave. They were kind enough to take us right to an edge of a forest which there we met Beorne Beorn was a half man half bear so we stayed with him for a while and when we had to go he gave us horses and supplies for on our way to Mirkwood. Mirkwood is a very creepy and scary wood and to make it worse Gandalf left us! So in Mirkwood we ran into spiders! I had gotten away with my ring and fought the spiders with sting and saved the dwarfs only to run into Wood elves. So with the ring I escaped and followed the elves.It took me weeks to find a way out but eventually I got them out in barrels. So when we got out of the barrels we arrived in Laketown. So we arrived in Laketown and we stayed there awhile but we eventually left for the Lonely mountain. At the Lonely mountain we looked for days but finally we found the secret door. So I was the first to go in and after awhile I came into a huge chamber with a bunch of gold with Smaug in the middle sleeping. So I made smaug furious and kinda said that I came from Laketown so I ran away bach to the passage and Smaug went in like an all caps rage there was fire all over the mountain so after awhile of hiding in the passage we decided to check out his gold and after awhile we realized that Smaug was gone! It turns out he was going to Lake town! So after Smaugs death everyone wanted the gold and there was a HUGE battle of five armies but in the end the goblins (who came in and made a huge conflict) made all the armies join together and fight the goblins. So on the way home I decided to only take two chests of gold and silver(and the ring of course). It took along time to get back to my little hobbit hole but eventually I got home and enjoyed many years with my friends and family. >:[ So polite old Bilbo invited him for tea. So I invited him for tea. So I ended up in this crazy journey thingy Without a pocket handkerchief (cc) image by nuonsolarteam on Flickr Gandalf So one day there was a horrible storm. So we sent out Fili and Kili to finda us a resting spot. The end. So the dwarfs, Gandalf and I were in a cave resting when all of a sudden these goblins came through a cave and captured all of us (except Gandalf.)


Transcript: The Hobbit By: J.R.R. Tolkien Who is J.R.R. Tolkien? John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (J.R.R. Tolkien) was born on January 3rd, 1892 in Africa. Tolkien attended King Edward's School, Birmingham, and later St. Philip's School, before winning a Foundation Scholarship and returning to King Edward's School. When Tolkien was 16, he met Edith Mary Bratt, who was 19 when they got married. J.R.R. Tolkien is the author of THE HOBBIT. A hobbit means comfort. Hobbits lived a very luxurous a hole. A hobbit was much shorter than a person and even shorter than an elf. Hobbit`s were used to many luxuries, more than 3 meals a day, maybe, twice than that, smoking a pipe, and farming. Hobbit`s are known for not being very adventurous. In the beginning of The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins is "following" Gandalf, but as you get further into the book Bilbo is realizing that he does not need the help from another and begins to take on more self-adventures. Bilbo has taken on giant spiders, finding his way out of a pitch-black cave(well... sort of..), and defeating Smaug the dragon. Bilbo, Gandalf, and the thirteen dwarves have gone through the Misty Mountains, the town and forests of Mirkwood, lakes, and the Lonely Mountains where Smaug is located. BILBO`S JOURNEY Bilbo is faced off with gollum reciting poems which has to be answered by the opponent. Bilbo has struck victory when he asked "What is in my pocket?" He is able to hold his will in conversation with the wily Smaug, while Bard shoots Smaug in the heart. In his journey, Bilbo encounters other fantastic creatures, including trolls, elves, giant spiders, a man who can change shape into a bear, goblins, eagles, wolves and a slimy, murderous creature named Gollum. When Bilbo was fighting the giant spiders he wasn`t thinking about his hobbit home, relxtion, or his ring (well, when he was tangled up).Bilbo used rocks, his sword, his ring, and his wits. He puts fear into the spiders and they eventually don't want any part of him. After Bilbo kills a spider in Chapter 8, he finally has enough confidence in his own abilities as a leader and hero. The Battle of the Five Armies in Chapter 17 is the climax of the expedition. Bard defeats Smaug with the black arrow. Gandalf takes Bilbo back to The Shire, where he lives contentedly in his hobbit hole for many years to come. The Hobbit is a delightful book reccomened for people of all ages. Eidth Mary Bratt Bard defeats Smaug with the black arrow. Gandalf takes Bilbo back to The Shire, where he lives contently in his hobbit hole for many years to go. What is a HOBBIT? CLIMAX Okay, where did they go? the turning point in the story (a.k.a. the climax) Bilbo,Gandalf, and the dwarves are walking through the woods and tree-elves jump out from behind trees and order them to a hault. the fifteen adventurers are taken to the great hall with the king--bilbo follwed from a safe distance-- and the king questions them...blindfoled. The dwarves refuse to behave which makes the king angry, they are then imprisoned. The tree-elves begin to drink and pass-out, then bilbo decides to try and set them free. start! resolution Smaug`s desolation
