Focus on Imagery

Draw and color a picture based on the poem.

Many students make a comic strip for this imagery activity.
It’s very simple, but I think it’s a good warm up to focus on descriptive language. One thing I would change is the directions. It should read “draw and color a picture to show what is described in the poem”, or something similar to reinforce the ‘showing with words’ concept of imagery.
