Chapter 6 – The Cowardly LionDownload The Wizard of Oz Free Book Units ~ Chapter 6.

As Dorothy, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Woodman walked through the forest, they heard many frightening sounds. All of a sudden a lion burst through the trees knocking Scarecrow and Tin Woodman over. The Lion headed toward Toto, but Dorothy stopped him by slapping the Lion on its nose. The Lion stopped and apologized. He told the others that he made loud roaring sounds, so the other animals would not realize he was a coward. The Cowardly Lion decided to join the group. He wanted to go to the Emerald City to ask the Great Oz for courage.

    I very much like your book units and plan on purchasing many of them. I have a favor. Could you create a Book Unit for Edward Tulane? I just love this book and my third graders do too! I would love for you to make a unit of this book!!!

    1. Thank you so much, Kathleen!!

      I am going to start creating some new book units next month. I’ll add Edward Tulane to my list of books I’m considering. I love hearing what teachers are using
      ! I’ve not read this book, but Kate DiCamillo is great!
