Science + Poetry = Conservation and protecting the planet

Here is another installment in my series of science poetry tied to science-themed picture books. My graduate student, Tarri Miller (in my "Poetry for Children" class) selected the focus on “conservation and protecting the planet” from the series of professional resource books, "Picture Perfect Science Lessons" by Karen Ansberry and Emily Morgan (and published by the National Science Teachers Association). Here are her three infographics centered around conservation and protecting the planet. The focus picture book is:
  • The Three R's: Reuse, Reduce, Recycle by Nuria Roca and Michael Recycle by Ellie Bethel
The poem that works perfectly with this book is “Jack Be Nimble” by Jan Peck and David Davis from their book, The Green Mother Goose. Below is a graphic featuring all these books, followed by the featured poem, and then the Take 5 activities to accompany the poem along with a "bonus" poem, “Recycling” by Susan Blackaby from The Poetry of Science. Enjoy!
