CHAPTER 1
ADJECTIVE BOX
In the box below write some adjectives to describe the scenery in Kansas. How does
the author portray the land? You may use the words in the book or your own words to
describe the setting. Bonus: Try to make the words look like the adjective. For
example this is how you would write the word small.

COMPARISON
Compare the description of the Kansas prairie in the book with that in the verses from
the Kansas state song: Home on the Range.
Home on the Range
Oh, give me a home
Where the buffalo roam,
Where the deer and the antelope play;
Where seldom is heard
A discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day
Where the air is so pure,
The zephyrs so free,
The breezes so balmy and light,
That I would not exchange
My home on the range
For all of the cities so bright.

How do the two descriptions of the Kansas prairie compare? Who liked the prairie
better, Mr. Baum or the author of the song?

It’s fun to see colorful hot air balloons racing across the sky. But our wizard likes only
one color:
green. He used dark green, medium green, light green, and forest green material to
make his
balloon. Color his balloon various shades of green. Or maybe you would like to show
him what
a multi-colored balloon would look like.

Up, Up, Up
Hot air rises. So why do they heat air to fly a hot air balloon?

THE STORY ISN’T OVER
Did you notice that Frank Baum did not tell us very much about the Land of the North? We
don’t know the witches name, the people she ruled, or their favorite color. Maybe Mr. Baum
was waiting for you to help him finish the story. What do you think happened in the Land of
the North after Dorothy returned to Kansas?
