Concrete Poetry for Shape Poems

Concrete Poetry is an online interactive that creates a shape poem.  The Woodland Trust created this activity as a way for students to create a personal response to the natural environment.  First, students will choose or draw a shape for the poem.  A selection of plant and animal shapes is provided if students do not wish to draw their own.  Then they will choose words to place in or around the shape.  A word-bank is provided for students to choose from or they can enter their own words.  Completed poems can be printed right from the activity.
