A poetry activity your students will love. I've done found poetry with both elementary and middle school classes, and it was a favorite type of poetry among both age groups.
Use as a supplement to your current poetry unit, or use as a creative and different type of poetry to introduce to your students.
Included (you can edit powerpoint):
A powerpoint that introduces found poetry through definition and student examples.
Last slide includes "how-to" instructions.
* I've provided pre-ripped out book pages for students to choose from. Another idea is to have students find their own book page and then make a copy.
