I found this book at one of my local bookstores and fell in love with it. 101 Science Poems & Songs For Young Learners by Meish Goldish is filled with science-related poems, songs and hands-on activities. It’s the perfect blend of science concepts with language skills specifically designed for grades 1-3. The book is structured by theme categories, which include: The Earth, Plants & Seeds, Animals, The Human Body, Seasons & Weather, and Science Wonders. Themes are presented in one-page formats with fun text and kid-friendly illustrations that can be used on their own or in conjunction with a themed lesson.

As an example:

Our World

The grass is green, the sky is blue,

The moon is white, the clouds are too.

The sun is yellow, the trees are brown,

The leaves are red when falling down.

The sunset’s orange, the air is clear,

What a wonderful world we have right here!
