Calligrams are a type of poem where words or phrases are arranged to make a visual image. For this project, I had each students draw an animal and a background. Instead of coloring it in, I had the students color with words. The words had to relate to the object they were coloring. They could use single words, or full sentences. I had my students use colored pencils for this project, but markers would also work.This was very cool, and the students LOVED it. Some students did complain that their hands were hurting them by the end, but the pain was worth it.
