Odes to Common Things Lesson Plan
In this lesson, students will study examples of poetry in both Spanish and English from Pablo Neruda's Odes to Common Things. They will learn Spanish vocabulary used in the poetry and create illustrated flashcards, becoming familiar with figurative language terms such as metaphor, simile, personification, and alliteration. Students will compose and illustrate their own 'Ode to a common thing' in Spanish and do research on the times in which Neruda lived.
