Engage your students during poetry month with this easy to implement research activity. This pack contains 33 of lines from famous poems - your students will research their allocated line and then color and create a loop for your class poetry line paper chain.
Use this activity to introduce
your students to new poetry, new poets, and new ways to understand and use poetic language. Inspire independent learning
in poetry. Poetic lines included from Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Robert Frost, John Milton, William Blake, Shelley, Carol Ann Duffy, Margaret Atwood - and many, many more.
