May 8, 2015 Wizard of Oz

"Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!"
"There's no place like home! There's no place like home! There's no place like home!"
"Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore."
"Follow the yellow-brick road."
What are these students reading???

Trevor holds up the mammoth annotated book of The Wizard of Oz.  Each students' copy was easier to hold.

Then students opened a character traits document in their Type on PDF app.  They were able to type and draw on the screen.  They were to find which character displayed which trait.  Alright, deciding who was cowardly wasn't too hard. :-)

Students used the Notes app to record what was happening in the story.  It was fun to type the events.  We learned that some things we saw in the movie are different from what Mr. Baum wrote in his book.

Then what happened?

Bailea checks out the illustrations in the original version.  What a fun way to learn!
