Haiku Poetry about Rocks

Poems created by

Mrs. Crabtree’s 4th Grade Class

The Study of Haiku

We learned about the form of poetry called Haiku.

Our class divided into three groups to study and learn information about rocks and to create Haiku poetry that demonstrated our knowledge of both the rocks and

the poetry form.

We studied these types of rock:

Metamorphic Rock

Sedimentary Rock

Igneous Rock

Igneous Rock

Group Members:

Diamond Washington

Marissa Ernzen

Igneous Rock Facts

  • Igneous rocks begin as magma

  • Magma can take millions of years to harden

  • New land is formed by the cooling of the lava

  • Inside volcanoes igneous rocks form large crystals

  • Outside the volcano, igneous rocks form small crystals

Metamorphic Rock Facts

  • Metamorphic rock is made from igneous and sedimentary rocks

  • No fossils found in metamorphic rock

  • Forces squeeze the earth by pressure forming the rock, not by melting it

  • Marble is a metamorphic rock

Sedimentary Rock Facts

  • Tells stories of the past with fossils

  • Contains layers of plants and animals

  • Sedimentary rocks are softer than igneous rocks

  • Sand particles are squeezed together to make the rock

  • Tiny particles at the bottom of the sea are called sediment

  • Limestone is a sedimentary rock

  • People use limestone to make sidewalks and buildings

  • Sedimentary rocks take over a million years to form
