An unlikely pairing—science and poetry—join forces in this beautiful, instructive collection

With a variety of poetic forms from ancient to modern and broad coverage of science topics, this book offers a wide range of opportunities for students to appreciate, analyze, and respond to these poems with creative work of their own. Online resources are available to support the book at www.tumblehomelearning.com/poetryideas.
