Connecticut gym teacher Justin vanGelder has incorporated Quidditch into his elementary school’s phys ed program:
VanGelder teaches a version of the game that can be played by earthbound mortals.

“The kids don’t fly and we have control of the balls,” he said.

VanGelder found the game on PECentral.org, a website that allows teachers to trade lesson plans.
