Students explore the world from a kite's perspective and record their observations in a form of tanka poem.

Teaching Tips

Invite older students to write traditional Japanese tanka—one straight 31-syllable line of poetry. Or, if you prefer have them write five unrhymed lines following a 5-7-5-7-7 format.
