During our last trimester of the school year, the 5th and 6th grade met on Fridays to work together on a Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Book Clubs. It was a wonderful opportunity for our classes to combine, to work with new teachers, students, and experience the magical world of Harry Potter.
The 9 3/4 platform was made using butcher block paper, a large sponge, and mix of brown and red tempra paint. Our "floating candles" are made from recycled paper towel/toilet paper tubes, fishing line, felt, tissue paper, and paint. If you look closely, before painting our tubes we dripped hot glue down the sides for a drippy wax effect!
