A complete lesson based on a selection of limericks by Edward Lear. Includes PPT presentation and comprehension tasks. Ideal for exploring classic and nonsense poetry. Also includes guidance for two follow-up activities. A flexible resource with the potential for extension into a short unit of work.

The 12 slide PPT contains:
• Limericks with supporting visual images
• Background information about limericks and Edward Lear
• Discussion questions
• Details of follow-up writing activities which support students in creating their own limericks

The resource also includes:
• A sheet containing three illustrated limericks. Useful for pupils to read, make annotations or highlight.
• Two differentiated comprehension worksheets. Worksheet A contains straightforward literal questions and an activity requiring pupils to visualise a limerick and create an illustration. Worksheet B is more challenging and contains questions linked to vocabulary and a task requiring students to express their opinion.
