A Worm is Like a Line––Comparison Poems @ Darwin

For our second poetry session: similes! For the time being, we’re calling them “comparisons,” and spending our time thinking through what value we can get by finding the commonalities in different things. We had a lot of fun brainstorming together, and the students tried their own. Enjoy!
