Encourage students to think about the beauty and wonder of our home planet with this scripted art activity. To start, they will create their own unique poetry about Earth. Then they will draw symbols or pictures that represent their poem. Finally, students will assemble their art into a 3D structure that represents a globe. The resulting structures can be hung from the ceiling to create a beautiful and meaningful classroom display.
This 90-minute activity can easily be split into two 45-minute activities. The optional stopping point is indicated in the lesson.
