All about Oz in Owls Head
Owls Head — Owls Head Central School hallways have been transformed into Oz over the past couple weeks.
Third-grade teacher Karen Matthews, along with other staff members, worked with Carissa Veit, Regional School Unit 13 Proficiency-Based Education Project Manager, to develop lessons with targets to address the common core standards for each grade.
"Art teacher Su Johnson was instrumental in developing the scenes of events with the students from Kansas to Oz and back again as you walk down the halls," said Matthews.
For the past few months, Matthews said the staff has been planning for the Oz unit — which will include a showing of the original movie, a trip to the Farnsworth Art Museum to view The Wonderful World of Oz exhibit, and related music with music teacher Angelia Johnson.
