Adjectives to Describe Character and Setting: Lesson 1 

Read the first 7 paragraphs from this excerpt of ‘The Wizard from Oz’  with your group and list the words and phrases used to describe the setting. Remember to visualise what you think the setting looks like as you read. After you have identify the describing words/phrases, draw a picture of what you imagine the setting to look like based on what language the author has used.
