I'm building a rocket.
As soon as I'm done
I'm taking my friends
on a trip to the sun.
The rest of the poem is at Kenn Nesbitt's excellent site -- Poetry4Kids.
The round up this week is at ayuddha.net.
Two girls in my class are experimenting with AlkaSeltzer rockets in enrichment. They took the photos above to show the steps for making a rocket. They also videotaped the process and are now working on an iMovie. This post is dedicated to them, and to all the girls who will grow up to be the engineers and rocket scientists of the future.
