FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - First Person Point of View: Write a Poem from Animal’s Point of View

by Ann Marie Smith
5th - 8th Grade
Document consists of a guidelines, poetry pre-write chart, & rubric. Students write from the point of view of an animal they choose. Requirements include a creative visual display, supplementing the poem for oral presentation. The poem must stay on topic & in 1st person point of view. Focus should be on its environment, food intake, daily activities, habits, cool facts. They are asked to research the animal before writing the poem. I also ask that they choose an animal other than the common household pet. I use this during our Discovery Unit, and they really have fun presenting them! A fun presentation at the beginning of the year makes for easier presentations as they practice being in front of the class throughout the year.
