Nature Poetry Writing Made Easy : Following the steps here anyone, even the most reluctant writers, can write a beautiful poem about nature. Ask students to bring in an object collected from nature, go out to the school grounds and write will observing the environment, or provide students with a collection of nature objects you have selected. Feathers, rocks, minerals, shells, dried flowers and seed pods, driftwood are some of the many items that work well. There are so many possibilities! I have used this process for years with children as well as adults, and my students are always amazed at their results.
Magnifying glasses are a fun, optional tool to use with this activity.
