Science + Poetry = Properties of bubbles

Here is another installment in my series of science poetry tied to science-themed picture books. My graduate student, Susan Scholz (in my "Poetry for Children" class) selected the focus on the “properties of bubbles” 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 the properties of bubbles. The focus picture book pair is:
  • Bubble, Bubble by Mercer Mayer
  • Pop! A Book About Bubbles by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
The poem that works perfectly with this book pair is “Water Droplets” by Celia Berrell from her book, Science Rhymes. 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, “Prism” by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater from The Poetry of Science. Enjoy!
