Create your own acrostic poem about the night sky, the stars, and what they mean to you. If you don't know what an acrostic poem is, do a quick Google search for an example. You need to start each line with a different letter. In this case, use the word STARS. The first line of your poem should start with an S and the second line should start with an A and so on. Have fun!
