If your kids are into Universal's The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, then this activity packet will help them express their creativity and knowledge of Geometry. It contains 10 worksheets for Grades 1 -4 that reinforce their understanding of two and three dimensional shapes, angles (acute, obtuse, and right), and lines (parallel and perpendicular).
Kids will draw theme park related buildings, trains, shop windows, and more, all while using certain shapes, angles, and lines. Paragraph writing is also incorporated so students can demonstrate their understanding of the concepts.
An answer key and Common Core Standards are provided.
Use these activities within your lessons, in math centers, or even as formative assessments. Here's what's included:
Wizarding World 3D
Students are encouraged to find 3D shapes in a picture. Then they write a paragraph to show their understanding of shapes.
Wizarding World Angles
Students hunt for angles in a picture. Then they write a paragraph to show their understanding of types of angles.
Wizarding World Windows
Students draw a shop window with two or three dimensional shapes. Then they write a paragraph to describe their shapes and what objects they are.
Wizard Alley Lines

Harry Potter Castle Create
Students draw their own castle using several two and three dimensional shapes.
Snow Wizard Shapes
Students find two dimensional shapes in a picture (triangle, pentagon, quadrilateral, etc). Then they create their own snow wizard using those shapes. They will also write a paragraph to explain what shapes were used.
Hogwarts Train Riddles
Students solve a variety of riddles based on shapes found in a train. For example: "It has 1 right and 2 acute angles." Then they will draw their own train and create riddles for a friend to solve.
Create a Ride with Shapes
Students are provided with pictures of two and three dimensional shapes and encouraged to create a theme park ride using some of them. Then they will write a paragraph where they identify and describe the shapes.
Wizarding World Architecture
Students are provided with four sets of angles and encouraged to draw buildings using them. Then they will write a paragraph to identify lines and angles they used.
Wizard & Muggle Drawings
Students are provided with a picture of a Hogwarts Express train. They are encouraged to draw wizards, muggles, and objects around the train using shapes, angles, and lines. This is designed to be a fun, culminating activity.
