How to Write a Funny Dinosaur Poem
An activity for elementary-school students

T. rex skullHere's a great idea to help your students get started writing a funny dinosaur poem.

Now it's time to start writing the poem. Think of the actions or thoughts your dinosaur would be doing or thinking, and describe them in short, descriptive sentences or phrases.

Begin with a clear introductory sentence. If your poem is to rhyme, then end this sentence with a word that has a rhyme (like lunch and punch). Then write the second sentence, having it end with a rhyming word.

Keep going until you've told a little story or described a funny scene.

Last but not least, give your masterpiece a title.

Optional: Draw a picture illustrating your poem.



For example:

Bob's Bug Brunch

When Bob the T. rex sat down to lunch,
He found a centipede in his punch.

Do all T. rexes hate to think,
Of a bug or two swimming in their drink?

Then Bob saw a spider on his bread,
He shivered when it crawled on top of his head!

After shaking it off, he stopped to blink,
I guess I'm not as brave as I think.
