A set of 16 Arctic poems perfect for introducing a topic on the Arctic, starting discussions on key issues in this area (global warming, future of the Sami people, Inuit life, living with the polar night, taking responsibility) and inspiring cross curricular writing.
A range of engaging but easy to imitate poetry styles are used:
Each poem comes with a simple explanation of its essential components. The children could use these as a scaffold before going on to write their own poem about the Arctic.
The poems cover these topics: Icebergs, glaciers, narwhals, winter, global warming, Inuit life, the arctic melting, day and night, Sami people, Inuit words for snow and 6 Arctic animals.
The poems are descriptive whilst using facts to educate and inspire.
All the poems are written by me and the images are copyright free.
All reviews welcome.
