Product Description
Let your students show their creativity and use this activity to visualize a line of poetry. Inspired by Poets.org Free Verse Project, this lesson and activity engages students in reading, analyzing, and then imagining poetry.

First, students view featured images of poetry lines from Poets.org and Flickr.com. Then, in Part 1, students search for favorite poems and explain their poetry choices in writing. In Part 2, students use their own creative techniques to produce images of their favorite lines of poetry. Next, they write short literary analysis essays explaining how their images express the meaning of the selected poems. Let students display their original images and participate in a gallery walk for the finale.

For a variation, have students write their own poems before completing Part 2. Then each student can use a line of her own poem for her image. Here are links to some of my poetry writing lessons:

This is an excellent lesson for visual learners and English Language Learners! Please note that teachers and students will need access to Internet to complete the activity.
