This month, just in time for St. Patrick's Day, many classes will be writing about Leprechauns. In this activity, your students will focus on the color Green. You'll have everything you need to teach your students what an ode is and how to write one. Your students will then write an ode in to a green-colored object. (Sample- An Ode To Broccoli, An Ode To Shrek, An Ode to Slime etc.) This is an 11 page packet. The finished product makes a great bulletin board!
