Some book settings—such as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter series—are unforgettable. Transport yourself to a favorite story scene with this project.
Reading a terrific book instantly puts us in the middle of the action. Ask students to identify some of their favorite books. Surely everyone who has read a Harry Potter book has been transported to a place where owls carry messages and school feasts appear before one's eyes. Were you sitting in that boat floating in the dark as Hogwarts comes into view for the first time? Do you ever wonder how you would respond when confronted with an ogre in the bathroom? Or snobbery at the lunch table? Students find out by putting themselves at Hogwarts (or another favorite book setting)!
With Crayola® Scissors, cut a large square from a recycled file folder. Fold the square in half two times by matching up the points. Cut one of these folds to the center. Slide the two pieces on either side of the cut together to create a standing triarama.
To decorate the backdrop of the Hogwarts' scene, unfold the triarama and color its two walls and floor with Crayola Construction Paper Crayons. You may also cut colored construction paper and glue it to the walls or floor with a Crayola Glue Stick.
After the surroundings are finished, glue the two file folder pieces that form the floor together to create the standing triarama with Crayola School Glue. Air dry.
On white paper or a file folder, draw the outline of Hogwarts with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils. Color in the castle. Erase sections for highlights or to add mortar colors between stones, for example. Use Crayola Metallic FX Crayons to add magical flourishes. Cut out the castle and glue it into the triarama. Suggest students make a moat around the castle.
With a small piece of Crayola Model Magic, form a cube to act as the base for the form. Stick a craft stick in the cube as the armature for the cutout. Air dry overnight.
Students cut out small photos of their heads (1 for each student). On another piece of file folder, students draw and decorate their figures with colored pencils and crayons. Remind students to make sure that their bodies are proportional to their heads. Attach them with glue. Air dry flat.
Glue the cutout to the craft stick in the cube. Now students can wander around Hogwarts and no longer feel like Muggles.
