A Double Animal Poem

List animals that you like. Then list animals that you don't like, or even fear. Choose one animal from each list.

List the striking physical qualities of each. List the behaviors and physical characteristics that cause you to like or dislike each.

To begin writing the poem, imagine that you are each of the animals at a particular time of day and in a particular place (for example, at sunset under a bush in the backyard).

In your poem help us to see the animal through its actions and through its eyes. Then do the same with the other animal.
