This packet consists of four friendship poems that are appropriate for middle school reading levels. Each poem is accompanied by three questions to help students analyze the poem in question, and a prompt to help them create their own poem that mimics the poem on that page. This should take middle school students at least 20 minutes to analyze, and likely an hour to create their own poems. Students should be familiar with popular poetry techniques (rhyme, rhythm, repetition, figurative language etc.).
This is a great activity for around Valentines Day or to leave with a substitute!
