Science Poetry

Sweat Haiku

Sweat, gross and smelly
Drops ozzing off your belly
Makes the girls say ewww

Thyroid Limerick

The thyroid is an endocrine gland
It's not made of hair or bits of sand
It does a lot
Except make snot
When working properly you'll fell grand

One of the great things about homeschooling is we can make up goofy stuff during class and call it learning! These were composed after a long lesson on the thyroid and what happens when things go wrong with a gland. The example was the thyroid and malfunction was hyperthyroidism. Not the most exciting subject and we felt it needed a little spicing up.

Love it! They remind me of Jon Scieszka's Science Verse. That's a favorite around here. :o)
