More Painless Poetry

At our teacher workshops, we have been doing water-related Painless Poetry.

Try this with your students – put them in groups of 4 – 5, have each write a word or phrase that relates to water or fish, then have them work as a group to combine them into a poem. Here are some examples from a recent teacher workshop:

Life-giving

2 hydrogens & an oxygen

Splash! A rush of cool refreshment

The current flow is swift

Water gives life

What are sustains life

Crystal clear effervescence

Flowing wet creek sparkling bubbles

River flowing clear and fresh

Clean water

Quenches thirst

Rushing, moist mist

Flows over rocks

H2O
