So for English we're doing poetry. With a partner we both wrote our own poems and compared them. We had to find one word that fits into both poems and we got the word "Change". Now we have to be able to read our poems while not boring the class by doing something, anything, that has to do with the word "Change" for atleast 10 minutes. At first we thought about wearing a mass amount of clothing and taking them off one by one but we need something better. Any ideas?
How the seasons change; have students illustrate changes and effects of each season.
How your friends change over the year or years.
Changes in society.
Changes in fads.
Without knowing what your poems describe, it is difficult to give you ideas. You could use pictures to illustrate day, night, sun, rain, happy, sad, etc. Here is a GOOGLE Search on illustrating change that might give you ideas:
The changing clothes idea would definitely keep the class amused and interested. Swapping socks or shoes, or shirts... but you will have to stage it so that they won't know what is happening next and you are within classroom protocol.
