For National Poetry Month 2021, I’m posting an equation poem each day. Maybe with an image, maybe without. I needed something very accessible and doable this year! Maybe you feel the same way? I’d love for you to join me, and here are several options for sharing your own or your students’ equation poems:
- in the comments below
- on social media with #EquationPoem–and be sure to tag me, please! (@LauraPSalas on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook)
- on the Padlet on my bookpage here
Here’s today’s equation poem. All the evergreens in the little park in the next block were harshly pruned for security reasons. As Randy and I walked by , I saw little icicles, I thought. (It was in the low 30s.) Then I realized they were pitch, not ice! I decided to use multiplication because even though they weren’t pruned multiple times, it took multiple days (weeks, actually) for them to start oozing pitch.
