Product Description
Writing haiku is a wonderful activity on many levels:
• it is short
• it is fun to illustrate
• it gets students outside the classroom environment
• it teaches students about poetry
• most importantly, it requires an attentive, non-judgmental, reverent, and humble attitude that is focused entirely on the moment and one’s experience, not on knowledge acquisition or one’s beliefs

This unit includes
o An introduction on the nature of haiku
o Sample poems by famous poets as well as amateurs
o Motivating activity with poems and questions
o Defining characteristics of haiku
o Lesson plan for writing haiku outside
o How to incorporate poetic devices of metaphor, personification, line, and imagery
o Follow-up illustration activity
