When it’s cold outside, how can we share the light within? We light our wands to curse the darkness in our Winter Wizards program!

This program was created as a 3-day after-Christmas day camp, but it could be done as a homeschool program, as a fun enrichment in classrooms, a Sunday or moon-day school program, a winter break program, or even with your own kids, etc.

In the afternoons we prepared for “The Yule Ball,” which was sort of a talent show that we shared at the end of the program. We performed the “Mummer’s Play,” an adaptation of the story “Winter King, Summer Queen,” and individual students had the opportunity to share songs, talents, etc. While the unit is thematically connected to the Harry Potter novels, it is not specifically based on the books. Students do not have to even have familiarity with the books, though young wizards who love Harry Potter will really enjoy the parts they recognize from the wizarding world!

Included in this .pdf document are the following 9 lessons:

1) Potions (science): Insta-snow

2) History of Magic (storytelling): Winter stories

3) Magical Creatures (animals): Epic Christmas Tale: How the Thestrals Saved Christmas

4) Herbology (plants): Cleansing with Evergreen Besoms/Brooms

5) Transfiguration (art): Ice painting

6) Charms: Dueling

7) Muggle Studies: Holidays of Light - Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Divali, Solstice

8) Defense Against the Dark Arts (social emotional learning): Melting frozen fear in the light of our memories (with a pensieve)

9) Quidditch/Flying Lessons

+ Quidditch instructions and the “Mummer’s Play” script

Also included is a link to a google drive folder which will give access for you to copy editable versions of the lesson plans and a few other bonus goodies.

I included links to where you can obtain supplies for the lessons and photos of lessons as often as possible as well.
