TWO BACK FLIPS

Dear Mom and Dad, I hae been turned into a wasp. Please bear with me being a wasp. I live in a hive now. Also, let Joe have my room and money, since I’m a wasp and I don’t need money. Love Matt. p.s. I will fly in the house and do two back flips, so you can recognize me. xoxox – – – These pieces were composed during the May 13th session of the Science Creative Literacy Symposia. During this day, students examined the many wonders of insects (using microscopes, and from resin collections, as well as from the…

BEING AN INSECT IS CERTAINLY NOT EASY.

Being an insect is certainly not easy. Having two long antennae, six legs, two wings, and three body segments, I make people become afraid of me. They may step on me because of their fear, or they might keep me in a cage. Also, it is extremely hard to defend myself against these threats. I may be able to fly, but I many never want to go back to my classroom. I think my family will not recognize me, although I want them to. If they don’t recognize me, I might just as well join the other insects. – –…

HELP ME!

Help me! I don’t know what I am, or what happened, but I have six legs and wings. When I walked flew into school, I almost got crushed! HELP! p.s. If you don’t recognize me, that’s normal… – – – These pieces were composed during the May 13th session of the Science Creative Literacy Symposia. During this day, students examined the many wonders of insects (using microscopes, and from resin collections, as well as from the Spencer Entomology Collection). Afterwards, students were then asked to design their own insect, as well as compose a postcard written as if they had…

I’VE BEEN TURNED INTO A BIG INSECT!

Dear Family, I’ve been turned into a big insect! Everything is so much bigger, and I feel so insignificant. My legs feel so funny now, apart from the fact that I have six of them. I have a heavy hard shell, and two long antennae. Although everything’s much different, some things are easier. I can feel with my antennae, and finally, I can hold a book, the TV remote, a drink, AND food at the same time! From, your family insect. p.s. Mom, I told you that that shirt was too big! – – – These pieces were composed during…

A LEAF

I am one of the million leaves in the wild. I am Red. Autumn has given me my bright red dress. Now, I am one of the leaves in the sea of red. I am white. Don’t ask why, because We all know If you really can’t guess, you shall go ask snow. I am green not just green but lime green, yellowish green. Blooms filled my vision. this is the season when new ones come and old ones go. I still remain green, under the bright shining sun. the light is blinding my eyes, but I quite happy with…

LIFE AS A KIWI

life as a kiwi is tough because going through the intestines sucks. growing stabs knifes through your fuzzy skin, your flesh being ripped apart by jagged white monsters sucks. trying to portray the stereotype of the “kiwi” plump, juicy, tasty, sucks. knowing that your mother tree grew you to be eaten sucks. life as a kiwi sucks. – – – This piece was composed during the May 5th session of the Science Creative Literacy Symposia. During this day, students performed a few biology experiments that examined change (DNA isolation from Kiwi, and a pineapple enzymatic degradation of jello). Afterwards, students…

UNTITLED

I can just imagine. Looking down on everyone else. Not being short. – – – This piece was composed during the May 5th session of the Science Creative Literacy Symposia. During this day, students performed a few biology experiments that examined change (DNA isolation from Kiwi, and a pineapple enzymatic degradation of jello). Afterwards, students were then asked to create poetry, again examining a subject in light of different perspectives. More pieces from this class can be seen here.

I DON’T LIKE CATS

I don’t like cats They meow and scratch they never like to be pet they keep you awake with their stupid purrs they cuddle in your bed they’re so soft and fluffy they’re fun to play with so cute and adorable I love my cat! – – – This piece was composed during the May 5th session of the Science Creative Literacy Symposia.
