    I have actually done a few lessons on Haiku and the kids really like it! I suggest starting with the introduction to syllables because the pattern has to be

    Encourage the kids to clap out their lines to see if they got 17 syllables. Practice syllables. Then either that day or the next go on to write your poems. I have my students write 2 or three and then pick their favorite ones and type them. I think it's a great idea for them to write about peace, but even though it's traditional to write about nature, peace is part of nature. I am going to do Halloween poems. HAPPY HALLOWEEN is a common first line because it has 5 syllables. If you are going to do a specific topic, I would suggest brainstorming with the students some ideas they could use in their poems. I hope it helps! Let me know how it goes!
