Hermit Crab Concrete Poetry

We are currently working on learning the difference between facts and opinions. Students wrote 3-5 facts about hermit crabs and 3-5 opinions about hermit crabs. We then wrote these into hermit crab pattern pages with black sharpie markers in order to create poems (click on each picture for a larger view) and then used watercolors to paint them. They turned out great! This idea could easily be adapted to any unit of study. We also read Eric Carle’s “A House for Hermit Crab”.  You can grab the pattern for a hermit crab here.
