In the Classroom: Word Art

Anne Phillips subbed two days for a 6th grade class at Bowman Middle School. Students had been reading and studying Where the Red Fern Grows.

One the first day they researched vocabulary from the book and she showed them some examples of word art and poetry art. Some students came up with mountain lion shapes, coon hounds, red ferns, raccoons, a kneeling praying man, etc.

On day two, students filled the silhouettes with rich vocabulary from the book. Using pens and colored pencils they created their own unique word art.
