Some of the best writing is inspired by nature. With the Bronx Zoo's incredible diversity at our fingertips, we'll enhance our observation skills and build literacy as we write odes to toads and a few creative words about birds. Students will explore fundamental forms of poetry and be inspired to create their own poems through an up close animal encounter and exhibit explorations.
