Make a "Recycled" Poem:
April is National Poetry Month, and April 22nd is Earth Day! Looking for an activity that combines both? Look no further!
Step 1: Assemble a good selection of newspapers, magazines, and other paper handouts you may have around the classroom or house.
Step 2: Ask students to cut out different words that they like, in addition to "small" words like "a" and "the".
Step 3: Either individually, in pairs, or as a group, create a poem using these "recycled" words! Glue or tape these to a sheet of paper and illustrate the page if you'd like!
