This activity is a combination of poetry writing and visual art. Students learn to write about color with descriptions that catch the reader's imagination. After creating the poem of a chosen color, a collage is made with items of the same color. Both the written poem and the art collage are glued on a large sheet of construction paper to make a display of color. If a teacher only wanted to use this for poetry writing, he/she could just use the language arts part. My 4th grade students have enjoyed this project and have come up with great color descriptions and fun art work. Samples of my poetry that I read to my students, and a 4th grade level student poem are included as well as a photograph of the actual finished project. There are step by step directions and a material list.
