1,000 Earth Poems

If each of your students wrote an Earth poem, no two would be the same. 

That’s because you showed them how to tap into their inner poet.

Step by step, you brainstormed lists and charts for each poetic device: sensory detail, rhyme, repetition, alliteration, simile, invented words, and author’s voice.

The kids could reference those charts, and add to them to create their own unique visions.

Then you’d see the Earth—and everything else in the universe—through fresh eyes. 

And you might think that poetry writing is heaven.
