4 Love Poetry
I do a unit on Poetry every spring. This is a nice way to think about how to connect poetry to science. I enjoyed the idea of keeping a poem in your pocket and reading it to others as the day goes on.

5 Great resource
Although I haven't used this in the classroom yet, I am impressed with the detail and the layout of the pages. It covers a variety of topics in the same unit I teach in the classroom. It also provides great questions for students to think. I also like the quiz at the end. Great resource with a wonderful audio component as well.
