This project asks students to demonstrate understanding of a wide variety of preterite verbs by creating and illustrating their own creative version of a poem similar to "The House that Jack Built". Lesson contains instructions, grading rubric, sample sentences and a copy of the original poem in English that could be used as a warm up. Project takes one day in class to write, and a weekend to create. Students can work solo or in pairs. poems are fun to share in class or do a gallery walk in the computer lab. This project works best with level II students who are learning the preterite tense.
