a wonder poem challenge

I keep thinking about the challenge I set you to write a poem called Why the Sky is Blue? that was both imaginative and factual (using facts). I was inspired by The Random House anthology of stories for six-year olds.

It seems like a golden opportunity to do more of this.

I challenge you to write a poem that answers a science question. The poem can be really imaginative and have a bit of fact too.

I have listed some questions but you can always come up with your own.

Why does the sun light up?

How does a star twinkle?

Why do we yawn?

What makes a rainbow?

How does sound travel?

What makes thunder and lightening?

Why is the grass green?

Why does snow snow?


Deadline: Thursday 26th June

Send to paulajoygreen@gmail.com. Include your name, year, age and name of school. You can include your teacher’s name and email. PLEASE say it’s for the Wonder-Poem challenge.

I will post my favourites and have a book prize for one poet (Year 0 to Year 8).
