This is a great worksheet to accompany the famous film The Wizard of Oz that has students analyze of different characters and concepts from the film represent major issues of the Populist Party in the 1800's.
Ten characters and concepts (Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Wizard, Flying Monkeys, Wicked Witch, , the Yellow Brick Road, Emerald City, & Flying Moneys) are provided with hints as to what they represent. A word bank then is used for matching them to the historical Populist Party concepts (William Jennings Bryan, the Gold Standard, etc).
