Acrostic Poem: Fruits and Vegetables


Hello my trusty Grade 7's!

Since we are working on a little mini-unit on poetry, I thought I would throw this little assignment out there that combines health and language. 

Select a fruit or vegetable to write an acrostic poem. Each letter of the word should start a line of poetry.

For example:

Always nutritious
Perfectly red
Plump and crisp
Lovely to snack on
Everyone loves apples

Make sure when you type it, each letter has its own line please.

After posting your acrostic poem, read your classmates' poems and vote for your favorite. Post a reply to the student who wrote your favorite poem and explain why you enjoyed it.
