Science Poems - 8 poems based on popular primary school science topics

Science Poems - 8 poems based on popular primary school science topics

This is a pack of eight poems I have written and used with various science topics. There are general activity suggestions for all of the poems, and specific activities for the individual poems. They can be used with both K.S.1 and K.S.2. The poems are supported by a 37 slide PPT presentation. 1) Colours Say...: a non-rhyming poem, each stanza is about a different colour 2) FIZZLE! CRACKLE!: a rhyming poem about electricity. This would be ideal for a rap 3) FIRE! FIRE!: a non-rhyming two stanza poem which describes fire, using two different viewpoints 4) Machine: a rhyming poem about the sounds and movements of a machine. This would make an excellent performance poem, and could also be used for a dance lesson 5) MAGIC ME!: a simple rhyming poem about the five senses. Ideal for an U.K.S.2 class to prepare as a performance for K.S.1 children 6) How Does an Animal Move?: a non-rhyming poem with each verse looking at the movement of a different animal 7) Sounds Around...: a rhyming poem about the sounds of everyday objects 8) A Mass of Puzzling Questions: a non-rhyming poem about space

Effects of Air Pollution

Effects of Air Pollution

These sheets were developed as part of a science unit on air pollution for a high-school age special education student but may be useful for other grade levels and typical students. These were supplemental to other resources from published curriculum that I can't include here, including topics about major types of air pollutants and solutions to the sources/problems. Includes a brief reading on the effects of air pollution- on the body and human health, on the environment and the economy and a fill-in the blank quiz/worksheet (2 versions) to go with it as well as a worksheet for identifying whether various pictures depict a form of air pollution involving circling/crossing out pictures and some short answer. May be useful to you as a worksheet or activity in the classroom or as a homework assignment!
