Dancing through Poetry

Get your class up and moving as they explore how to express movement and dance through words. Designed around two poems by Lillian Morrison about break dancing, the activity truly captures the creative and multi-sensory aspects of poetry. Young learners engage in more traditional tasks like reading, discussing and comparing poetry at first. The culminating activity has young scholars creating facial and body movements to express the ideas and feelings conveyed in these poems.
