This book explores the conjunction between poetry and school science.


Science and poetry are so often caricatured as being at the opposite ends of the cultural spectrum, but this book aims to prove otherwise by exploring the conjunction between the two and fusing the use of poetry with school science.

The book highlights excellent work drawn from a series of poems produced and used by teachers and children in the classroom. Crossphase (although mainly secondary) and cross-curricular, the book is beautifully illustrated.
