Create Your Own:

Worth 10 points (minimum of 50 words each)

I want you to create your own Jinx, Hex, or Curse.  You need to create at least two (making each worth 5 points).  Tell me the name of them, what they do, and anything else that makes them special.

Extra Credit: (Due May 31st, 2011)

(Chose two of the three options to equal 30 points)

Writing Project: Worth 15 points

(150 words minimum)

Write a story in which you used two of the spells listed in the lesson and what the circumstances around you using them were.  It needs to be believable, ie. you mostly likely were not fighting against a Death Eater or Dementor.   This is supposed to be fun so make it creative.

Art Project: Worth 15 points

Draw a comic (containing at least four scenes) of you using a jinx, hex, or curse.  Make sure you show which spells you are using in the comic.  I’m not looking for perfection, you can have stick figures, as long as I can tell you put some effort into it.  I encourage you to make them silly.
