Haiku Poem Interactive
About this Interactive
With this interactive, students can learn about and write haiku, a popular Japanese poem that traditionally has three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. Students begin by brainstorming words for their poem, and then they compose their poem with attention to how many syllables they've written for each line. The final step allows students to customize the design of their poem with one of the provided artistic backgrounds or by uploading their own image.
Saving capability allows students to return to their work and make revisions. Final work can be shared via e-mail, as a PDF, or printed out.
