Hungry for Science : Poems to Crunch on - by Kari-Lynn Winters & Lori Sherritt-Fleming (Hardcover)
About this item
From the same author-illustrators who brought young readers Hungry for Math (a poetic look at math concepts) comes Hungry for Science. These short, lively poems help young readers explore scientific concepts -- from chemical reactions to magnets, life cycles and more. A glossary of scientific terms is included in the backmatter.
- A Chip Off the Old Rock
- I'll weather the weather, whatever it brings,
eroding from larger to smaller things.
From boulders to cobbles, from pebbles to sand,
rumble, crumble, whirl - I travel the land.
Pulled by gravity,
down a steep slope,
pushed by ice (to warm places I hope),
tumbled by rivers, I scramble downstream,
blown by the wind - it's all part of my dream!
Deposited gently, I've come from good stock.
I know I'm a chip off an igneous rock.
