This video contains examples of student work, names have been covered to protect student privacy. The poetry exercise used to create these works employs simile to explore emotion. Each student chose one "feeling word" to work with, and walked it through their five senses, creating a vivid description of their specific emotional experience.  To learn more about this exercise, and try it for yourself or with your students, see the Concept #2 Metaphor/Simile video on the poetry lessons page of this site.
