Harry Potter characters and their links to classical (Roman & Greek) mythology

Harry Potter characters and their links to classical (Roman & Greek) mythology

Did you know that most of the names of characters and magical creatures in the Harry Potter series have roots in classical mythology and Latin and/or Ancient Greek? Do your students love Harry Potter? This is a ready to use, editable Powerpoint presentation with slides of 24 different characters and creatures from the Harry Potter series, where possible with images from the movie. In the notes for each slide you will find the description of that slide: the connection between that specific Harry Potter character and Latin or Ancient Greek language and/or mythology. Let the students recognise the characters and teach them about the links with the classics, to let them discover once again that the classics really are all around us, if only we learn to see them!

It then encourages the students to make inferences about Ancient Greek Society from the Gods that they worshiped. It is an effective way to getting students to link actions people took to religion.
