Images and Poetry

Students have worked throughout the week with a variety of writing techniques from Georgia Heard's book Awakening the Heart.  Using images, students used some pre-writing structures from Heard's book. Students have collected many photographs from this collection from National Geographic's best photos from 2016 

Here are some of their pieces.

Grey Death

He sees a rhino
he takes the shot
sees it fall and takes his horn.

He sees the blood
what has he done?
He sees the rangers
he's got to run and
he drops his gun.

Now he’s in trouble
but they're so gullible.
Now he's driving and diving
to be safe
now he's a disgrace.
