I chose Fencing as a good hobby for Beowulf, because he loves to sward fight and with fencing that is what fencing is. This picture would also work as a good quote because he was well known and had a very long resume.

#25 Wyrd (pronounced Weird). This would be an awesome thing to include in any lesson whether it be Beowulf or Macbeth ( Scenes (28 total) / Characters (40 total) ). I remember learning about the Wyrd sisters in Macbeth and how they stood for fate. It changes the entire meaning of play when you look at them from that perspective rather than as a witch. ---- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6gP3Lim7_k
