This is a game that I created to help my students analyze poetry. In addition to helping with poetry analysis, it also exposes students to a variety of poetry styles and authors. The game is in the style of Apples-to-Apples and includes two different ways to play (short and long game) as well as two levels of difficulty/rigor. I have used this with both middle school and high school students and found it to be beneficial at both grade levels.
NOTE: I do not own the rights to the poems used for this game so the purchase of this game does not constitute ownership of the poems, themselves, just the game materials and gameplay instructions. While some of the poems are in the public domain, others are not. Any use of this game requires that you keep all author and publication information on the poem cards. These poems cannot be modified without prior permission of their individual authors but may be used for educational purposes.
