My students loved this project!
Students are given the task of imagining that they are fighting in the trenches during WWI. They are to write a sensory poem about their experiences (Sight, Sound, Feel, Smell, and Taste).
They also have to provide a little bit of background information on their soldiers - Guided Questions are included.
Their poem should have a visual aspect to it - I gave my students the choice of drawing a picture or creating a 3D model.
In this project, directions are clearing stated and organized.
RUBRIC is provided.
I have also included a diagram that I use to explain Trench Warfare and additional ways that you can expand on the project.
Pictures of my Students examples are included!
Again, my students really enjoyed this project! Their poems were amazing; a lot even enlisted the help of their English teachers! I have included a few examples of their work to help you and your students.
I hope you enjoy! Please provide feed back and let me know what you and your students thought - I would love to hear how it worked in your classes.
