Poetry Slam!

Create poems without writing! Young poets create poems using words cut from newspapers, read their poems aloud, and compile them in a book. This instructional activity allows the teacher to view each learner's creative process and assess their current command of the English language. Also, for older learners, consider giving them more exact guidelines. For example, you could limit the amount of words they can use, and challenge them to only use  written phrases three words or longer.

Lesson Planet is a great portal that has given me a lot of great ideas for topics for which I have less preparation, such as physical science.
