Welcome to The Wizard of Oz Education Resource.
The lessons contained in this pack have been designed to complement students’ viewing of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new production of The Wizard of Oz so that they gain a deeper understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the production.
Although they have been arranged in subject order, the ideas contained in each can be used in other subjects.
Teachers can use the lessons in any order or modify them to their own needs. In order to provide flexibility, some of the lessons have been designed as ready-made class activities, while others are information sheets that teachers can use to stimulate class questions or discussion. These are indicated in the contents below.
Students can undertake activities before or after seeing the show.
A few of the activities are available as standalone worksheets ready to download and print.
