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.
