Writing Project: Worth 15 points

Create a new potion.  What potion do you think is lacking in the Wizarding World?  Create a name for your potion.  Tell me the ingredients of the potion and why you’ve chosen those ingredients (cite any sources you use). Lastly give me step by step instructions on how to create your potion.  The more details you have the more likely you will receive full credit.

Art Project: Worth 15 points

Draw a picture of the effects of your character taking a potion mentioned in the Wizarding Universe.  For example, if your character took the Draught of the Living Death you would draw yourself as sleeping.  You cannot use this example as your own, chose something else.  I’m not looking at your artistic ability, but the effort you put into this option.  Make sure to put the name of the potion your character took.  Load the picture to an image-hosting site and send me the link.
