Space Poetry Lesson Plan and PowerpointQuick View

Space Poetry Lesson Plan and Powerpoint

I created this plan and PPT for a job interview where I was asked to teach a year 5/6 class. I based the lesson on their two main topics which were Space and Poetry. I used the fantastic poem 'Six Ways to Look at the Moon' by Pie Corbett in this lesson - included. I also used another fab poem - included. Task was for the children to write their own version of Pie Corbett's poem. PPT easy to follow along while teaching. The 'Six-ways-to-look-at-ordering-a-poem' resource was used as an activity where I cut up the sentences and worked with a focus group to read, re-order the poem - this was great for discussion and for thinking about structure/ language in poem, etc.
