What’s do you think is more important, the answer or the question? This week we read excerpts from Pablo Nerudas The Book of Questions and talked about some of the answerable and unanswerable questions that we wonder about. After brainstorming students got to work on their question poems, and came up with so many silly, goofy, and wild ones. Enjoy this week’s poem!



Why do clouds move? 

Why can wind go so far? 

Why do volcanoes exist? 

How does sadness turn to happiness? 

Why does happiness turn into angerness? 

Why do babies cry when you tickle them? 

Why does summer turn into winter? 

Why do we have veins?
