Harry Potter Trivia and Private Games by James Patterson

Posted on January 7th, 2015 by

IMG_1937 IMG_1942 IMG_1936Today we played an intense game of Harry Potter Trivia to prepare ourselves for Harry Potter World in London. The trivia tested our knowledge of Diagon Alley, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Quidditch, and spells.

Over winter break we were assigned to read Private Games by James Patterson, a crime novel based on┬áthe London Olympic Games. As a class we discussed what we liked about the book and what we didn’t like, such as the ending of the book. In small groups we discussed a series of question on how the book brought up controversy about the modern olympics. Some of the topics included: how media influences how we view the games, the future of the Olympics, how the Olympics affect local communities, what happens to the stadiums after the games, and the costs of building olympic villages.
