General science never stops! You have to learn earth science, space science, life science, chemistry, and physics - and that's way too much! But before you administer hot compresses to the head and herbal tea for settling the nerves, try Science, Fresh Squeezed!
As American History, Fresh Squeezed!, the first in the BrainJuice series, did for our country's past, Science, Fresh Squeezed! offers everything you need to know and understand about the entire body of scientific knowledge. Extracted from unreadable tomes, reduced to its essence, served up in hilarious poetry by Carol Diggory Shields, and garnished with off-the-wall drawings by Richard Thompson, these 41 poems will make another science class completely unnecessary. No guarantees on grades, though!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I will definitely be referring back to this poetry book while teaching different topics in science. It has poems from when the world was just one big continent to What we are. A great way to get students laughing and interesting in Science. Also, at the top of each page they have mnemonics and ideas for each poem when teaching.
