Poetry is a rhythmic way to help students familiarize themselves with new science words while also working on everyday vocabulary, rhyming words, and word families. These 3 poems were written to complement any physical science unit about force and motion (push and pull, gravity, Newton's Laws). Students practice science vocabulary while learning to read fluently.
Although this type of activity is helpful for English Language Learners because of the repeated vocabulary practice, all students benefit from this different way of approaching science content. Also, some students really enjoy performing poems for their friends and classmates and acting it out, too, with their own routines!
In this file there are 3 poems.
