Barry, Martha H.; And Others
Suggesting combining poetry and science learning, this collection of materials maintains that the natural intersection of science and poetry can be used to stimulate thinking, create interest, and explore new possibilities. The collection includes: (1) the South Carolina Basic Skills Assessment Program's Objectives Reading/Science Match; (2) examples of "shape" poems (cinquain, quintet, parts of speech poems, noun verse, diamante and picture poems); examples of structured poems (name, number, alphabet, couplet, haiku, limerick, quatrain, and tanka; (3) examples of fun poems; and (4) activity sheets to assist students in writing their own poems. A list of 26 resources is attached. (RS)
