Product Description
Use inquiry to make reading poetry fun and meaningful in your class with this free activity. In this lesson, students begin by searching for and identifying their favorite poems. Then they read, analyze, and reflect on their poem choices. Next, they work in groups to describe and define poetry. After a mini-lesson on metaphor, they then use figurative language to write a definition for poetry in the form of an extended metaphor and share their ideas in whole–class discussion.

By using inquiry to describe and define poetry, students employ higher-level thinking skills. This is an excellent lesson to use at the beginning of any poetry unit and incorporates all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Standards.

This 10-page resource includes the following:
-a detailed lesson plan with ELA Common Core Anchor Standards
-poetry attitudes survey
-“What is Poetry?” activity
-“What is a Metaphor?” activity
-example handouts
