I use this PowerPoint when studying about fish. I have the students take notes on four-six different fish, so they will be able to choose one fish to write a poem about. Information and pictures are given on many different types of fish. Students then write a poem about the fish. A slide gives directions for the poem and is followed by several examples.
This lesson goes with a fish unit where I have fish in the classroom. I have been using it with Trout in the Classroom, the last couple of years. My 5th graders really love learning about the trout, and then studying about many different kinds of fish. This project has been a winner with my students.
