Digital Hallway: Scrimshaw-Inspired Poetry

In this episode of the Digital Hallway, Luce Teacher Fellow Megan Jacobs describes two types of poetry projects for the classroom, based on scrimshaw used in Mary Mattingly's Open Ocean exhibit.  You can check out related worksheets for these activities as well as the "poetic tooth" she describes in the resource bar on the left side of this page.

The Digital Hallway Series features teachers sharing a lesson plan or classroom activity in short video snippets. Check out the left sidebar of each video to find supporting materials.
