Poetry Project

April is National Poetry Month!
In honor of this month you will find a poem that you like and illustrate it using Inkscape.

1) Spend the first 10-15 minutes of the class period surfing the following poetry sites and reading some of the poems.  Try finding a few poems that you like.

  • Funny poems written by students:

  • Poems by Langston Hughes:

  • Top 500 poets:

  • Chilrdren's Poetry Archive

2) Select one of the poems that you found.  Copy and paste your poem and its author to a new Inkscape document or Word document and save it to your Y drive.

3) Illustrate the poem using Inkscape. Be sure to select a different font and use the tools that we learned about this quarter to illustrate your poem.
