If you mean unseen poems in terms of finding poems in other writing that wasn't originally meant as poetry, then a good exercise is to enlarge a newspaper article for the class and work on finding poetry within it, together. You might want to pre-screen the article for interesting words and other things, but in general, you can just find the poem as you go along. Once you do it together as a class, then you can assign them to find a short poem from a newspaper or magazine on their own.
