I absolutely LOVE the article on wikiHow titled "How to Write a Limerick." The link for this article can be found on the last slide of this PowerPoint product.
I transferred a lot of the article's information onto a PowerPoint slides presentation, and I thought I'd share it with you! This is a fun and easy way to teach students about limericks. This product includes a short video, examples, and step-by-step instructions on how to write a limerick. I recommend having students write their own limericks after using this product in the classroom.
I used this PowerPoint for my eighth grade students, and they loved it. However, limericks can be tricky to write, so I can also see high school students benefiting from this PowerPoint.
It will take roughly 55 minutes to complete this lesson, including time for students to get started on writing their own limericks!
