Get Started
Found Object Poem
Grades: 2 - 8
Once a week for one month ask students to compose short works of poetry in response to teacher-supplied found objects, or photos of found objects.
Prompts to help students get started could include:
Photos should lack context and objects should be something out of the ordinary.
Step I:
Step II:
What is the object’s backstory?
Where might this object be found?
What does the object look, feel, smell, sound and taste like to you?
Write a persona poem in the voice of the object.
Why it Works:
Stimulates imagination and encourages students to practice writing and thinking creatively about a variety of topics.
