Poetry, Nature and Me
Workshop or Residency for grades K through 5th
Students discover a sense of identity in the natural world around them, and learn to use poetry for creative, emotional and intellectual expression. They work, individually or collaboratively, through a series of nature-inspired exercises, moving from structured, literal poetry to more free-form, metaphorical poems, all based on what they see and feel in nature. Poems include a Color Poem, an “I See” Poem, an “I Am” Poem, a Listening Poem, a Weather Poem and an Imagery & Metaphor Poem.
