WRITE An ACROSTIC POEM ABOUT POLLINATORS –

To begin with, an acrostic is a poem in which the first letters of each line spell out a word or phrase.

  1. You can use single words, phrases, or even full sentences in your acrostic poem.

Acrostic poems are when you take a word and write it vertically, in capital letters (for this challenge – a word related to pollinators – such as – pollinators, butterflies, Honeybees, etc) and then you write a word, phrases or full sentences, that begins with each of the letters that is vertical. The words and phrases should relate to the vertical word.

It’s easier to understand if you see an example – so here you go

Here’s an acrostic poem about Ice Cream:

Ice Cream

I love every flavor.
Cookies & Cream.
English Toffee.

Chocolate Chip.
Rocky Road.
Even Strawberry and
Almond Fudge.
Mmmmmmmm.

For every poem you turn in, you get to choose a prize , plus we will display your poem in the library.

You can get a template from the library or just make your own. Get creative and have fun!
