This is a packet of 32 pages of poem excerpts, jigsaw activities, rubrics, discussion questions and a project to make your own poem. This is ideal for Spanish 1 or equivalent language learners. Students learn about Pablo Neruda and his poetry by analyzing a segment of his poem "Oda a la papa." The jigsaw activity breaks the poem into three manageable parts in which students use context clues to discover new vocabulary and analyze their portion of the poem to present to the class. At the end of the unit students make their own "Oda a la..." poems.
