It was loved by my students. It is used to teach sixth-graders poetry. Although it was more of an overview for them than a poem, they found it refreshingly different from what they had been used to. It is a great resource for distance learning and would be great for people in person.

It was a great way to see poetry in a new light. The conversations that took place during this activity were very engaging. This resource is a great one and I will definitely use it again.
