I decided to do the Harry Potter Wand because I thought it seem interesting because I don't know much about Harry Potter so I thought I may want to learn something about it. I've always wanted to try to carve a wand but never had the chance to. This project was very educational but also fun.
The sorting hat says "you might belong in HufflePuff, where they are just and loyal, those patient HufflePuffs are true and unfraid toil." The type of wood is cedar wood. They say it is the closest you will get to the real wand. The HufflePuff traits are loyalty and jhard work. The element is Earth.
I feel like I have learned a lot of things about Harry Potter from this project. I am glad that I chose the Harry Potter one because I have enjoyed carving wands and learning more things about Harry Potter.
