  • Tree poetry is exactly what it sounds like – a poem about a tree! Students observe a tree in the natural area or at home, and create a poem about it. Encourage students to spend some time with their tree, learn its story and write down important points. Then have students create a poem of their choice (rhyme, haiku, etc.) to share its story. Wrap up: students share their poems, and revisit proper poem structure in class.
