Young boys from 8 to 14 can’t seem to get enough of the irreverent and often dangerous poetry. Each visit leaves them feeling confident they just got away with something, and slightly aware that they also may have just learned a thing or two.

In addition, as part of the online tool, students are prompted to brainstorm, write, and revise their poems, thus reinforcing elements of the writing process.
Students can also print their finished shape poems, cut and color them, and display them in the classroom or at home.

Poet's Pantry - Virtual Field Trip
http://www.field-trips.org/lit/poet/index.htm
A field trip created with TourMaker guides you through a sequence of Web pages on any given topic. For each page, there is simultaneous commentary in an accompanying frame. You move forward and back through the Field Trip using the tour Control Panel and you can leave the Tour to explore links and return to it whenever you want.
Poetry is full of figurative language, open to interpretation, and awash with unusual use of punctuation, word constructions, and hidden meanings. Is it any wonder that students are sometimes confused by it, particularly those who struggle with simpler reading assignments? By focusing on children? poetry that is less complex, this module attempts to spark interest in poetry and build student confidence in deciphering it. The student tour introduces students in grades 3-6 to different types of poetry and a few well-known poets and their work in a fun and enjoyable way?ia the Internet!
In order to make the tour as enjoyable as possible for students, many of the poems selected incorporate humor. Also, a section on nursery rhymes serves as an example of the simplest poems and builds students?confidence in their ability to read and comprehend poetry.
