What a neat idea! Chemistry is such a poetic process, I think a chemistry poem is perfect. While I was looking for you, I found this neat site with poems for each element on the Periodic Table! (Watch out, there are pop-ups) http://www.everypoet.com/absurdities/elements/

Found a couple more for you. So glad to hear that your teacher is going cross-curricular. More teachers need to do this. It makes it really nice when departments work together so that material overlaps- helps deepen knowledge for students like yourself.

You might also try this site:  http://www.chem.ucla.edu/harding/haiku.html .  It's an organic chemistry Haiku project.  It's pretty neat.  There were lots of categories and poems already written, plus it gives you ideas for creating your own.

Good Luck!

There is a cool website I found that gives you several choices. I have copy and pasted it below. However, make sure if you use any of these that you give proper attribution to the author so you are not guilty of plagiarism. There are chemistry poems on this site that have to do with everything from water, to matter to molecules.  Have fun.

Here's a poem about chemical change and property I found I hope you like it!

I personally love everything about this chemistry poem! MY favorite parts would be...

Chemical Change,
I'm feeling strange,
My bonds,
I think they're breaking...
Chemical change,
I'm rearranged

and...

Oxidize, or use a flame,
To make things hot, combust!!!
Iron tends to oxidize,
And makes a thing called rust...        

With the first stanza easily summarizes what chemical change is simply which is when bonds break and rearrange into something else. Then the second stanza gives a great example of chemical change as well as the type of reaction process, oxidation.

Why did the two photons become a particle?

Answer:When they met they were getting bored with high speed
travel and decided to make something of themselves
