Charms Assignment - HLBOES

Project Assignment:

Out of 25 possible points.
Due: August 4 (Tuesday)

For every Charms student, a wand is the most essential tool. I would like each of you to try your hand at wand-making. Using common household items (and whatever else you may be able to find at the local crafts store), please construct a wand for yourself.
In addition to constructing your wand, please include the following: a list of (Muggle) materials you used and 2-5 sentences about why your wand has picked you. You can talk about wand wood, core, length, flexibility or anything else that may be special.
Also, each student must have a place to put his or her wand when class is over. For part of the assignment, you are to construct a wand pouch. Again, use whichever materials you can find at the local crafts store, but I have found that both knitting and crocheting work quite well.

Grading Rubric:
Wand Construction: (10 points)
  • Is this portion of the assignment finished and did the student follow directions? (3)

I reserve the right to give partial credit for completed assignments.
