This is an activity to complete with one other person who you can see. So, that means a sibling, a parent, or other person in your home; or a friend or other family member over Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp, etc:
- Both of you should take a few minutes to select a poem from this list but do NOT share it with your partner.
- Silently (no speaking or writing down words!) act out your poem for your partner, one line at a time. You may supplement your acting with drawings, if you wish.
- Your partner will write down a line of poetry for each line you enact.
- Trade places.
- Take a few minutes to polish and revise your poems, then have your partner share the original poem as you share what you wrote.
