Unit Study: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

May 13, 2020

This is it! The final book in the series! I’m so excited to share this final Harry Potter unit with all of you!

It has all been leading to this…Harry Potter vs. Voldemort. “Neither can live while the other survives...”

Harry, Ron, and Hermione are off on an epic quest to find and destroy Voldemort’s Horcruxes. But they have to hurry because Voldemort and his Death Eaters are gaining power and influence over the Wizarding World.

Secrets are revealed, and questions are finally answered in this epic finale.

In this unit, like the units preceding it, you’ll continue your Magical Terms and Spells Glossary, Magical Devices Guide, Magical Creatures Field Guide, Travel Guide to the Wizarding World (Magical Places), and the Weekly Prophet. In this final unit, we’ll add one last guide – Harry Potter, A History. A sort of definitive guide to the important figures in the Wizarding World.

As always, there are copywork/dictation passages taken from the novel, as well as vocabulary, discussion questions, and activities to help you get the most out of the story.

You will also be studying a Hogwarts course – this time it is  A History of Magic! At least, Magic in the way we Muggles understand it. Your child will learn about how magic has been viewed throughout history, study some of the world’s most famous magicians, and learn how to perform magic tricks so that they too can become magicians!

The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows unit study will take approximately 4 weeks to complete and is appropriate for upper-elementary and up. The PDF file is 64 pages and includes a full schedule, project ideas, and 12 activity pages.

Harry Potter Unit Study Frequently Asked Questions:
Do we have to start with the Sorcerer’s Stone unit study, or can we jump in at any of the books?

Yes and no. While these unit studies are semi-standalone, they are designed to be completed in the order that the book series ran. As the storyline in the books, the unit studies continue to build off of each other as they progress. You will start several activities such as keeping a glossary of magical terms and spells or creating a field guide of magical devices, to name a few. These will be used through the unit study series and new activities and additional entries will be completed in subsequent lesson plans.

If we already read the book, do we have to read it again to complete the unit study?

The unit study is designed to enhance the reading (or re-reading) of the book. While you are going through the chapters, vocabulary words are taken from the text, and activities are completed that correlate with what you are reading. This is the perfect unit to complete on your first reading of the book, as well as a perfect companion for rereading the book and diving deeper into the lore and story.

Are you planning on writing unit studies for all of the Harry Potter books?

Yes, absolutely! And they are finally all completed!
