Show your drawings to one another. • Examine your eight drawings and create a final illustration on the new sheet of paper you have been given that combines all or some of the stanza-by-stanza pictures into an image that best represents the meaning of the whole poem. You may use pencil and/or color to render this final drawing. • Post your final image.
