One of the most interactive novels I've had the opportunity to teach so far has been J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I used this novel with a 12th grade English 4 (British Literature) class, but it can certainly be used with almost any age group!
This product is a wand quiz with six questions - three questions point the student to their wand wood type, and the other three to their wand core type.
The possible wand woods are:
The possible wand cores are:
Unicorn tail hair
Thestral tail hair
This product is all inclusive - you will get the quiz (formatted with two per page for easy printing!), the answer key (which can be printed or displayed on your board), and a short explanation document describing the attributes of each possible wand wood and wand core (along with characters who had each wand wood type).
I used this with my students and they loved it! If I had time, I would have also let them create their own wands, although that is certainly optional.
