Reading and Writing: Patronuses and Wands (Symbolism)
« on: May 08, 2018, 03:30:46 PM »
JK Rowling uses a great deal of symbolism for characters' Patronuses and Wands.




READING ACTIVITY = She explains in great detail in two Pottermore articles. Students could start by reading these articles and annotating symbolism explanations and any unfamiliar vocabulary.



1. https://www.pottermore.com/features/whats-in-a-wand-tree-symbolism-and-wandlore-in-harry-potter


2. https://www.pottermore.com/features/what-is-a-patronus


After that, students could do a fun REFLECTIVE WRITING activity. They could journal on the following topics:


1. What would be your Patronus and why? Use and explain the symbolism behind your choices.


2. What would be the components of your wand and why? (e.g. unicorn hair, wood type). Use and explain the symbolism behind your choices.
