This is a very fun, interdisciplinary activity that incorporates both poetry and math! This file includes student directions, the poem template, and the rubric. Students use the poem "Sick" by Shel Silverstein in order to gather data and then organize the data into three different graphic representations: frequency table, line plot, and a histogram. This activity could be used as extra credit, homework, or as an assessment at the end of a graphing unit. This activity could also be very easily differentiated by giving each student a different poem based on their ability level.
