"Yellow Brick Road"

Students visit the land of Oz

On October 21, 2016, the Governor's School of Southside Virginia, Keysville site led third grade students from seven feeder divisions down the yellow brick road into the wonderful Land of Oz. There was an assortment of colorful, fun, and interesting hands-on booths that everyone could enjoy.

These booths included educational activities that were coordinated with the third grade Standards of Learning. Some booths were Melt the Witch, Flying Monkey Fist Toss, I’m Melting!, Terrible Tornado Bottles, and The Yellow Brick Factory.

At each booth, the GSSV students were all in costume, representing all the unforgettable characters of the Wizard of Oz. This interdisciplinary event was instructional and entertaining and provided students and teachers with a fun way to master the SOLs!
