Also, could anyone suggest some classroom activities - I'd perfer those that don't involve crafts, please!
Thanks & Cheers!! :)
Oooh, this is a good question!
Instead of delving too deep into character relationships, I would focus on the more fun things in the books. Some good topics could include how each House tends to act, who is everyone's favorite professor and why, what would wizarding schools all over the world be like, if you could have any wizard or witch power, which would you have and such topics.
As for activities, you can incorporate other fields into this. Have the kids do a 'report' on their favorite creature from the books, or even ones that don't appear! You can supplement this with mythology. For group activities, at the beginning of the course you can 'sort' them into four groups (but make your own, some kids may be upset at being a Slytherin!). If you want to incorporate science, hold 'potions' demonstrations with simple chemical reactions. For writing, have each kid imagine that they are at Hogwarts, and keep a journal for each 'day' they spend there.
I hope you and the kids enjoy yourself, and I'll admit I'm jealous that you are able to teach such an interesting topic!
I think you need to ask them what they learned from the relationships between the characters. That's always a good topic to discuss.
