Writing Poetry

You may choose any of the projects below. You may choose to do more than one. You may also come up with your own idea or modifications…let’s chat!



  1. Find pictures of some ancient wonders that you would like to write about (for example, the Pyramids, the Taj Mahal, or Stonehenge). Write a collection of poems about the secrets of each chosen wonder. You could write a poem similar in form to those in the selection, you could write one that consists of questions you would like to ask the wonder, or you could write one in the wonder’s voice. Final copies of the poems should be displayed along with the pictures on a poster.



  1. Write your own “My Secret Place” spoken word poem and perform it for the class. You may choose to record their poem in either audio alone or as a music video. Below, is a template you may choose to use as a starting point.
