The Classroom Package: Curriculum Connection

 Children of ... (Your Home Area)
 The poem, Children of the Amazon, uses rhyme, word repetition, alliteration and consistent line length to create rhythm. Have students locate specific examples of each. Point out that, in each technique, it is a pattern or a repetition of sound that actually produces the rhythm: after all, that's exactly what rhythm is. Break out some CD's and compare this to rhythmic techniques found in music.

Writing Idea: Using 'Children of the Amazon'  as a model, have students write an
original 'Children of ....' poem about children from your school, town or part of the country.
