Science + Poetry = Observing seashells

Here is another installment in my series of science poetry tied to science-themed picture books. My graduate student, Christina Moncayo (in my "Poetry for Children" class) selected the focus on “observing seashells” 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 observing seashells. The focus picture book pair is:
  • Next Time You See a Seashell by Emily Morgan  
  • A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle
Christina featured an excerpt from A House for Hermit Crab as her featured poem to accompany the book pair. 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, “Mrs. Sepuka’s Classroom Pet” by Ken Slesarik from The Poetry of Science. Enjoy!
