This activity challenges students to describe ordinary objects in detail and create a poem based on the descriptions. Students will have a blast writing poetry about any mundane object-from a piece of paper to a chair or even lint from their pockets. This fits in well with a poetry or writing lesson and is a fun challenge for many age levels. You can introduce the activity with a box full of random objects and have students choose one for inspiration before writing their poems. Students can write in groups or independently depending on your classroom's needs.
