I was especially happy with how our Diagon Alley activity turned out. Students were divided into seven groups- one per shop Harry visits to get his school supplies for Hogwarts.
- The Leaky Cauldron
- The Apothecary
- Eeylops Owl Emporium
- Madam Malkins Robes for All Occassions
- Flourish and Blotts
Front: Label with the store name, and draw what you would find in if you looked in the store front windows
Inside: Recreate the scene inside as described by the book.
Back: Write group member names
Laying Flat: List the textual evidence you used to create your foldable. Please write exact quotes and provide page numbers. This evidence should include descriptions of the setting AND what happened there. DO THIS FIRST
Foldables should be colored nicely and accurate given the information in the book.
And here is my example:
"Hagrid wouldn't let Harry buy a solid gold cauldron, either ('It says pewter on yer list.')" (80).
The kids made theirs over two days, and we did a walking tour of Diagon Alley today. I hung up the buildings around the room, and the students went around the room recording textual evidence for each location. We talked about which ones really brought the words to life and how good imagery does that in our minds.
