This works great as a poetry station or literacy center. Students will compare and contrast poems. Using a venn diagram, students will use manipulatives to analyze two poems.
The two poems used in this activity are Bed in Summer and Young Night Thought by Robert Louis Stevenson. This activity is a great way to reinforce poetic terms such as stanza, hyperbole, poet, alliteration, rhyme, tone and speaker.
Station directions and a station answer sheet has been provided.
Answer key is provided.
For this activity, I like to print out the large version of the venn diagram and laminate it in advance. This helps keep everything in tact for the station. I also precut out the answer pieces and laminate those as well.
If you plan to have multiple copies of this, you may want to print the cut outs on different colors (or number the backs) so that if one is found on the floor, you know which set it belongs to.
