The Hufflepuffs and Slytherins have been taking Care of Magical Creatures together this year, so this assignment is for both Houses to complete.
Professor Hagrid has asked for 6 inches of parchment (say 200 words) about a personal experience you've had with a magical creature (outside of Hogwarts), or about the magical creature you'd most like to have as a pet. Of course if you chose the latter option, you should write about why you'd like to have such a creature as a pet, but also the potential problems of domesticating that magical creature.
A listing of Magical Creatures can be found in your textbook, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Good luck!
ETA: This assignment is due at Midnight on Saturday, June 7th.
