EDISON — Seventh grade students in Corinna Crafton’s English class at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School applied their knowledge of poetry terms and analysis on February 1 to craft poems. Teams of students were given 12 strips of paper, each with one line of poetry. In under 15 minutes, the teams had to piece together the 12 strips of paper to form a completed poem, using their knowledge of rhyme, meter, sound devices (alliteration, assonance, and consonance) and figurative language to solve the poetry puzzle.
