The full The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Book Unit is now available through this series of blog posts. Saving each lesson for a novel study is a great option. Since students are so familiar with this well-loved American classic, most chapters can be stand-alone lessons. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was originally published on May 17, 1900, so it is now in the public domain. There is no need to purchase a class set of books because the complete text will be added to the unit plans.
Links to each post in this series are located at the bottom of this page.
