Here is a great idea to break up the monotony of the winter months. A middle-school teacher in Oklahoma City has transformed her classroom into a Harry Potter-themed room. Most of these ideas can also be used in the school media center to capture students’ attention.
She begins the adventure by papering her door to look like a brick wall and the entry to the Hogwarts Express, Platform 9¾. She also made her room into the different school houses including a potions station and a three-headed (stuffed) dog. She also has a good stack of Harry Potter novels handy for the students to read. What ideas have you done with this fun Harry Potter theme?
