Benefits of Acrostic Poetry

Using the letters in a topic word to begin each line of a poem, acrostics are a creative way for students to write about what they’ve learned on a particular topic, what they know about a character in a book, or their own thoughts about a subject.

This acrostic poem pack includes templates for each of the following Earth Day words

  • Earth
  • Reduce
  • Reuse
  • Recycle
  • Conserve

This poetry structure works as a scaffold for students that allows them to develop their ideas and choose interesting words to share their thoughts.
