3.  Write one haiku poem.

  • What did you think of poetry before you started this Quest?
  • What did you learn that you didn't know before?

  • Will you plan on writing a poem again sometime?

  • Glossary of Poetic Devices definitions
  • Poetry in Motion definitions
  • Your favorite poem written in the same style
  • Another favorite on the same subject
  • Haiku poem
  • Limerick
  • Paragraph of reflections
  • Final project (original poem & illustration)
