Oz maps

Today we created maps of the land of Oz. It is a bit more difficult than you might think because Baum lost track of what he had written about when he started writing sequels to the Wizard of Oz. He even switched around the Munchkin land and Winkies Land so some maps of Oz are very inaccurate. ( There are lots of Oz maps online just Google 'maps of Oz'.) I created a map outline for the kids and copied it on cover paper, they used water colors to paint the color of the four main lands and the deadly desert that surrounds Oz.They then used fine liner pens to draw in details on the map including sketches of some of the characters from the Wizard of Oz and the Marvellous Land of Oz. The children's efforts are photographed below.
