Poetry in Motion 2019
Posted by Suzanne Ament on 5/22/2019
Welcome to the 7th grade Poetry in Motion presentations. Students presented dramatic readings of “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou, “Fire and Ice” by Robert Frost, “Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost, and “After the Winter” by Claude McKay, “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” by William Wordsworth, “ I, Too” by Langston Hughes, and an excerpt from John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Each group presented a detailed explanation of their bot and a group reflection of the project.
In addition, students shared visual robotic representations of these poems. Our Poetry in Motion projects were created using the Hummingbird Robotics Kits, Snap programming, and various other materials. We have spent countless hours building, painting, gluing, and programming, so we are delighted to share all of our hard work. Sit back, relax, and enjoy watching poetry come to life.
