Line poems are format poems where the words have been selected to convey a message about a current issue; in this case nature and the global environment. In the theme of this line poem, the nouns represent environmental issues and are connected to our senses by the use of adjective and verb selection. Sometimes the student message is positive and uplifting, sometimes their combination of vocabulary implies an expression of their concerns or fears. If used as a culminating activity, the line poem allows your students to demonstrate their familiarity with new concepts and terminology. When given the opportunity to discuss the issue of the environment, students do possess a profound, social conscience and can make powerful statements in Spanish.
