About the Session 

This activity is introduced as the One Word Game. Working together, each member of the group generates one word describing a single rock sample. This produces a word bank which the group then refine and add to. They then organise the words to come up with a simple list poem using poetic devices of their suggestion, and perform their work. The word bank can be taken back to the classroom for post-visit work.

Duration: 1.5 hours

Session Format: 5 minute introduction to the museum, 15 minutes exploration, 20 minutes guided session building up a word bank, 15 minutes group work to make poems and 15 minutes to perform the poems

Available: Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and all day Thursday. All Seasons.
