Word Association Poetry with Visual Thesaurus (or Not)
Young poets get inspiration and guidance for making word association poems with the Visual Thesaurus. Your class could complete this project with nothing more than a pencil and paper as well. A nice one-off for a substitute during your poetry unit, or when you just want to refresh your curriculum with something instructive, but active and fun. You could relate it to your current in-class text. This is a well-supported resource. Hyperlinks to excellent, relevant, supporting materials.
