PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


This is a poetry project that I do with my students after learning the styles of poetry as well as various types of figurative language. It is a free style, creative writing poem in the shape of a fingerprint. The students were obsessed with this project and never complained once. I had them make the poems all about themselves and their feelings and then displayed them at our poetry night!
