How many Harry Potter spells do you know?
by Jouviane Alexandre

"Harry Potter" is a series of novels about a young wizard, named Harry Potter, who with the help of his friends struggle to take down the dark wizard, Lord Voldemort. As one would expect, the books are filled with wonder, mythical creatures, and magic. One of the ways that magic was practiced was by using wands to cast spells. With a swish of the wand and a flick of the wrist and the proper pronunciation, there were no limits to what people could do.

No Wizarding World would be complete without an awesome list of spells, and the world of Harry Potter is no different. With spells that can open doors, to spells that can hide someone's memories, to the three unforgivable curses, there are spells for virtually everything.

Have you read all of the books or seen all of the movies? Would you be able to identify the spells if you heard or saw them, and would you know what they do? Well, this quiz was designed to test your knowledge of these spells. Take it to see just how much you really about these spells. Maybe if you get all of them right, you'll get a wand in the mail.
