Lever 2 – Community

A Community of Poets

This sequence of four activities is designed to give children an understanding of the different communities that they are a part of, give them space to think about and share what life in their communities has been like during lockdown, and to reaffirm their place within the school community by considering what they value and what they would like to improve.

All the activities reference a poetry collection by Cheryl Moskowitz called The Corona Collection: A Conversation which is available for free online. This resource was produced with the kind permission of Cheryl Moskowitz.
