Color Poetry Video

Step One – Write a Color Poem

Look here to see directions on what a color poem is and some examples.

Then pick a color, open up Google Drive and start writing your poem. When you’re done, share it with three or four other people.

Read other people’s posts as they come in. Give other students a serious alternative either by giving them a new line or helping them improve one they have. Read the suggestions other students give you. You don’t have to use them, just consider them and reply respectfully.

Revise your poem as needed.

Step Two – Get Photos

Get an iPad and find photos that match your lines in the poem. Use sites that use Creative Commons or copyright free images such as:

Step Three – Add text to your picture

Step Four – Record

Record your narration using 30hands.

Step Five – Publish
