This Biopoem-During Activity lesson plan also includes:
Have your class create biopoems after reading chapter 24 of Jerry Spinelli's Milkweed. In groups, they make a list of characteristics for one character in the book (consider assigning characters based on how much information is provided for each), and create a biopoem. After doing one as a small group, they work individually to create their own biopoem. A template is included for the biopoem, but consider letting more advanced writers blend this information into a well-written poem of their own.
