Sixth Grade Chalk Poets

Sixth Grade students read an article recently on how teens can take care of their emotional stress during the coronavirus pandemic for a curricular unit on how journalism and poetry intersect. Then they read a poem, "Wash Your Hands" by Dori Midnight. Each student chose a line from the poem to inspire and help them create their own poems. As a way to help and inspire their community around them, they took a word or line from their own poem and walked outside to create a sidewalk chalk message and art.
