Science Books for Seasonal Poetry

Science Week

I'm so excited to participate in Science Week by sharing a few of my favorite science books. We just started a unit on weather. Part of the unit focuses on seasons. My students are required to write a 5 senses poem about a season. We use the following books to expose students to poems about different seasons. My students love the poems from these books by Douglas Florian.

Head over to TBA to find the linky party for more ideas of science related books.  

A special thanks to Jennifer from Rowdy in First Grade for organizing Science Week!

  4. Those are great books, and seeing them further inspires me to integrate literacy and science. I always found it an engaging way to begin lessons- I have a bunch of science poems that I wrote over the years on my website
