As part of the “Water Is Life” module students researched an Ancient River. Working with a local poet Students used Scientific vocabulary and their research to create a Pantoum poem communicating the health of the river and the overall water crisis facing our world. All poems were compiled into a poetry book ” Spoken Words From The Ancient Rivers”. The books were sold to the public and proceeds went to “Wisconsin Water For The World” a local organization that organizes water relief projects to water stressed regions on the world. Students read their poems to the community at there culminating event.
