This lesson was lots of fun! I had kids type their initial word lists into Google docs and then use Wordle (wordle.net) to create some art with the lists, and kids really enjoyed that, as well. The magnets were lots of fun; the magnet strips themselves were kind of a pain, but worth the effort. Great idea to incorporate parts of speech with the classic Carroll poem! Five stars!
