It’s time to head back to Hogwarts for Harry’s fifth year in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
This year Harry has a lot on his plate. The Ministry of Magic is actively working against him, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor is taking over the school, and school work as doubled as the fifth years prepare for their O.W.L. exams.
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. As always, there are copywork/dictation passages taken from the novel, as well as vocabulary and discussion questions to help you get the most out of the story.
This unit also includes a Defense Against the Dark Arts Hogwarts course – just like Harry and his friends had to work together to fight against the rising evil in the Wizarding World, you and your child will be learning about Activism and how they can fight against the evils in our own world. You’ll be reading about children who saw a problem and stood up to do something about it in It’s Our World, Too: Young People Who Are Making a Difference. The major project in this course will be working on a service project, using the book The Kid’s Guide to Service Projects for inspiration and guidance.
The Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix unit study will take approximately 4 weeks to complete and is appropriate for upper-elementary and up. The PDF file is 53 pages and includes a full schedule, project ideas and 9 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 if they had to be, they are designed to be completed in the order that the book series ran. Like 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 plan.
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 pulled out and activities are performed 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 reading the book again and diving deeper into the lore and story.
