A webpage that provides Earthquake facts for kids through poems. This is a great resource for kids to learn about Earthquakes in a fun and easy-to-understand way.
Every day, all around the world, many people feel the earth shake. They often don’t know why, until they learn about earthquakes.
An earthquake is a shaking of the ground, caused by the movement of plates. The force of the quake can be so strong, it can cause buildings to fall.
The ground can shake for a few seconds, or it can last for minutes or even hours. Some earthquakes are so strong, they can cause tsunamis.
Two Pieces Of The Earth’s Crust Grind Against Each Other.
Earthquakes happen when two pieces of the Earth’s crust grind against each other. This movement makes the Earth shake and can cause damage. The force of an earthquake can destroy buildings and kill people. Earthquakes happen all over the world, but most happen in California. Scientists are always trying to learn more about earthquakes so they can predict them and help people stay safe.
One Of Nature’s Deadliest Forces
Earthquakes are one of nature’s deadliest forces A quake can cause buildings to topple and roofs to cave They strike with little warning, leaving devastation in their wake Hundreds of people can perish in the blink of an eye While scientists cannot predict when and where they’ll occur There are things that you can do to stay safe when one hits.
There’s Mighty Power Underneath
There’s mighty power underneath The ground we walk on every day A force so strong it can make the earth Shake and rumble in its way Sometimes it’s just a gentle nudge Other times it’s a massive quake But one thing is for sure, earthquakes Happen all around the world.
What is an Earthquake?
An earthquake is a shaking of the ground, Often felt when plates move and grind. The force can be so great that buildings sway, And people can be thrown to the ground. For many it’s a terrifying experience, Not knowing when it will end or if it will increase. But for some it’s an opportunity To feel the power of nature’s fury.
What Causes Earthquakes?
The Earth is restless Underneath our feet Pushed and pulled by plates Mighty forces moving Building up pressure Until finally… A tremor shakes the ground And the Earth lets out a roar Release of built-up energy Causing an earthquake.
How do we Measure Earthquakes?
Earthquakes are measured by the Richter scale A seismometer is what is used to measure it The readings go from 1 to 12 The bigger the quake, the higher the number Damage and fatalities are also considered Scientists use this information to predict When the next big one will hit.
How Destructive are Earthquakes?
A force of nature so destructive and wild, smooth surfaces turned to jagged shards. Million-dollar homes now nothing but piles, Lives taken in an instant with no warning. The ground-shaking, the earth splitting, Tsunamis following in its wake. Casualties numbering in the thousands, Mothers wailing for their children. Nature’s fury is not to be taken lightly, Earthquakes show us just how powerful she is.
There’s Mighty Power Underneath
The earth starts to shake and rumble and everyone starts to scream and run telephones start to ring and televisions turn on papers fly off the desk and books fall off the shelves pictures start to fall off the walls the ground keeps shaking and quaking and everything is in such a mess.
How Do Earthquakes Happen?
The ground we walk on every day Is not as solid as it seems Underneath there’s molten rock Shifting and moving all the time Until there’s a sudden break And the earth starts shaking and swaying Making everything around us tremble Until finally it’s done And the ground calms down again.
What To Do During An Earthquake
If an earthquake happens, be sure to stay calm. Drop, cover and hold on until the shaking stops. If you’re in a doorway, move to the nearest open space. Once the shaking has stopped, check for injuries and help others if you can. If you’re outside, move away from buildings and power lines. Once you’re in a safe place, stay there until the shaking has stopped.
What to do after an earthquake?
After the shaking subsides and the earth stops moving, what do you do?
If you are inside, stay there. Do not try to go outside. If you are outside, find a safe spot and stay there.
Do not stand in doorways. Do not use elevators. Follow the instructions of local officials.
Earthquake safety tips:
In A Shaking Building
When the earth starts to shake, Start to evacuate immediately. Do not stay in a building that is shaking. If you are in a car, stop and get out. Once you’ve evacuated, stay away from buildings and power lines. Be sure to follow the instructions of emergency personnel.
In A Sturdy Building
When the Earth starts to shake Don’t be caught unprepared Drop, cover, and hold on Stay calm and don’t panic If you’re in a sturdy building Stay inside until the shaking stops Be aware of aftershocks And finally, be prepared!

Once a Year
Once a year all the ghouls and ghosts Come out to play in the streets and host A grand ol’ time, when candy is king And costume parties are the thing
Children dress up as their favourite things And revel in all the spooky fun For one night, all inhibitions fall And everyone just has a ball
Halloween is a Special Time
Halloween is a special time When witches fly and skeletons climb The moon is full and the air is chill And all around there’s a feeling of thrill

Fun and Scares
Halloween night is drawing near Fun and scares are in the air Costumes, candy, and all that jazz This is one holiday we all love to dabble in Be it a kid or adult, we can’t resist The spookiness, the thrill, the excitement It’s all for one night and we can’t wait So dress up in your scariest garb And join us as we party hard.
Dressing Up for Halloween
One day out of the year, Everyone gets to be someone else. You can be whoever you want to be, And no one can say you’re wrong. You can dress up in whatever you like, Even if it’s not what’s expected. It’s a time to let loose and have some fun, And forget about all your troubles. So get out your best costumes, And let’s go have some Halloween fun!
Being a Vampire
Making a Halloween costume is always so much fun, especially when you can be something you’ve always wanted to be. This year I’m going to be a vampire, and I can’t wait to see the reaction I get when people see me out and about on Halloween night. It’s going to be so much fun to dress up and have everyone think that I’m really scary, even though all I really need is some good makeup and a cape.
A Ghost – again!
I can’t believe it’s already that time of year, When everyone’s mind starts to churn What costume should I wear? Should I be a cat, or a bat? A skeleton, or a witch? I could be a princess or a pirate There are just so many possibilities! But in the end, I always seem to come back to one idea I’ll be a ghost, just like last year.
Making A Halloween Costume
Making a Halloween costume is so much fun. It’s like a puzzle that I get to solve. I have to think about what I want to be, And then find the perfect pieces to make it happen. Sometimes it’s easy, and sometimes it’s hard, But the end result is always worth it. I love getting dressed up for Halloween, And walking around in my costume, pretending to be someone else. It’s always so much fun to see what everyone else is wearing, And take part in all the Halloween festivities.
Let’s have some fun
Since Halloween is almost here, let’s get ready to have some fun. There are games that we can play, both indoors and outdoors.
One game that is always popular, is playing “catch the ghost.” You can also try to find the candy, or go on a scavenger hunt.
Another game that is always a blast, is going trick or treating. You can also make your own costumes, or carve a pumpkin with a friend.
Ghouls and Goblins
Ghouls and goblins, Fly across the night sky. The moon is full, And the time is right, For tricks and treats. Witches cackle, As black cats prowl. All of nature, Is alive and well, On this most magical of nights.
People have been celebrating Halloween for centuries, But no one knows exactly how or when it began. Some say it started with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, When the barriers between the living and the dead were thinned. Others believe that Halloween is descended from a pagan harvest festival, Or that it was created by Christians as a way to distract people from rioting. Whatever its origins, one thing is for sure- Halloween is lots of fun! There’s dressing up in costumes, trick or treating, and parties galore! So get ready to have a spooktacular time!
Halloween is Coming
Do you hear that? It’s the sound of children laughing, And jack-o-lanterns grinning. It can only mean one thing: Halloween is coming!
Everyone is getting ready, Pumpkins are being carved, And costumes are being made. There’s a lot of excitement in the air, In anticipation of the fun night ahead.
There will be trick or treating, Games, ghost stories and more. It’s such a joy to see all the kids dressed up, Having a blast on Halloween!
Write Your Own Halloween Poem
Halloween poems should be fun and spooky, Just like the holiday itself! Be sure to add a touch of black, And maybe a ghost or two.
For a really fun time, try rhyming, It will make your poem even better. Be sure to have a happy ending, Otherwise it’s just not right!
Now it is your turn.
Encourage your children to write their own poems and then perhaps you could put them in the comments, or they could write about their plans for Halloween.
Don’t be a bully You’re not tough Making someone feel small Isn’t cool or fun It’s just mean and wrong So don’t do it, don’t be a bully.
Just because somebody is different from you…
We all have things that we’re good at, But that doesn’t mean we need to put others down. Just because someone is different from you, Doesn’t mean they’re worth less than you. If you want to be a good person in this world, You should try to be kind to everyone.
Don’t bully others!
Don’t bully others, it’s not fair They may not be like you, but that doesn’t mean you have to tear Into them, make fun of them, or put them down It only makes you look like a jerk and it’s not very sound Think about how you would feel if someone did that to you It’s not nice, it’s not fun, and it’s definitely not cool So just stop it, and be kind instead
Stop, Don’t bully me, It’s not okay, You’re making me feel small, I don’t deserve this at all, Please just stop.
To the bully
Bully, why do you torment? Do you feel strong when you make someone else feel small? Do you have no friends of your own so you have to make others suffer? Why can’t you just be kind? Is it really that hard? Can’t you see how much it hurts? Bullying is wrong and someday you’ll realize that. Until then, we’ll be here to fight against you.
Stand up to the bullies
There’s no need for words when we feel the pain Be it a shove or a nasty name We all know that bullying is not okay It doesn’t matter if you’re small or large Your feelings are just as important as the next person’s We have to be kind and help one another When someone is feeling down Stand up to the bullies and make them see That kindness is what makes us strong.
Don’t Listen to Them!
Sometimes people are mean And they say things that aren’t true They might make fun of you Or call you names, too
But you don’t have to listen To what they say or do Just keep your head up high And don’t let them get to you.
Stop bullying day
Dear world, we need to put an end To all the bullying that’s going on It’s time for us to realize That this isn’t right and it has to stop We’re better than this, we can be kind And make sure everyone feels loved and respected So please stand up, let’s make a change And help to make our world a better place.
This is the day we stand up Against all the things that make us feel small We are not going to take it anymore This is our day to be brave and strong To show everyone that we won’t back down We are united and we’re not alone Let’s put an end to bullying today!
Today is stop bullying day
Today is stop bullying day, A day for us to come together And put an end to all the pain. Bullying has gone on for too long, Causing people to feel alone. We need to stand up and be strong, And let’s make this world a better place, Where everyone can feel safe and free.
Don’t be a bully!
Bullying is mean, and it’s not right No one deserves to be treated with such spite We should be kind and loving and true And help those who are being bullied too It doesn’t matter if you’re big or small You can still make a difference in someone’s life So let’s all work together to end this strife And make our world a better place, overnight!
Stand up for your friends
Stand up for your friends, and they’ll stand up for you. It’s the golden rule that we all know is true. If your friends have your back, then you’re never alone. Together you will always stand strong as one.
What we learn in anti-bullying week
This week we learn about Resilience and ways to cope And techniques to help when we’re feeling low How to be there for someone who is hurting And how to refuse to be a part of the hurtcircle We learn how to speak up and how to stand tall When it feels like bullying’s winning after all We learn that we are not alone in this fight That there are people who want to see us thrive.

Is Spider-Man suit bulletproof?
Spiderman’s suit is bulletproof and no one can see his face he’ll save us all from danger and do it with style and grace
People always seem to doubt the powers that he has within but Spidey’s never given up and always does what’s right
He’s strong and he’s fearless and never hesitates to fight against evil and injustice for the good of all mankind.
How did Spider-Man get his powers?
Peter Parker was just your average teen Until he was bitten by a radioactive spider This gave him the power to climb up walls And shoot webs from his wrists like spider-silk He used his new powers to fight crime And protect the innocent people of New York Spider-Man is a hero to us all And we’re grateful for the amazing things he does.
How fast can Spiderman run?
Spider-Man can run so fast He could leave this world behind He’s faster than a bullet train And he’s never slow to move He can outrun anybody Even the Flash can’t keep up He’s the superhero with the speed Of a cheetah and the strength of a lion.

Spider-Man falls from a great height He’s flipping and spinning as he falls The wind rushes past him as he plummets People are afraid he’s going to die But then his web-shooters deploy And suddenly he’s slowing down He lands safely on the ground.
Spider-Man can See in the Dark
Spider-Man can see in the dark, No need for any light. He can swing through the city, Without making a sound. His enemies are quaking in their boots, As they hear him coming near. They know that they’re not going to make it out alive, If Spider-Man is around.
Can Spider-Man catch a bullet?
Spider-Man is amazing, he’s able to catch a bullet; he swings from webs with ease, and never has to worry.
He’s agile and fast, the perfect superhero; his skills are amazing, and he’s always ready.
No matter what comes his way, Spider-Man will always be there; he’s a hero for our time, and deserves our respect.
Is Spider-Man as fast as a bullet?
Spider-Man flies through the air He swings from building to building He’s faster than a bullet He’s stronger than a tank He’s always ready to fight He’s the Amazing Spider-Man.
How does Spider-Man breathe?
Spider-Man doesn’t have lungs like we do He has a special organ that helps him breathe This organ lets him take in oxygen from the air And it also helps him to spit out webbing fast.
Spidey’s web-shooters help him to swing through the air And when he needs to take a break, he just hangs upside down His powers depend on how well he can breathe So keeping this special organ functioning is key.

Be the tortoise, not the hare
In life, slow and steady wins the race
Don't be fooled by the fast and flashy
The one who endures will reach the end
Think long term, not short term
The gains you make will be worth your while
The Tortoise is Slow and Steady
The tortoise is slow and steady
While the hare is quick and jumpy
The tortoise is a symbol of endurance
While the hare is a symbol of haste
The tortoise plods along at its own pace
While the hare races ahead without thinking
The tortoise will reach its destination
While the hare may never make it there.
Not the Flashiest
Slow and steady wins the race
The tortoise knows this better than most
He's been around for years, through thick and thin
He's not the flashiest, but he'll get there in the end
Others may be faster, but they won't last long
The tortoise is patient and consistent – he's a survivor
When the race is over, he'll still be going strong.
When You Rush You’ll Only Tire
Slow and steady wins the race
Be the tortoise, not the hare
When you rush you'll only tire
The prize will be yours for the taking
If you just take your time
You'll be surprised what you can achieve.
The Tortoise Is The One Who Wins
Slow and steady, the tortoise is the one who wins
The race against the hare, the fastest of all creatures
Though often underestimated, the tortoise is a force to be reckoned with
When it comes to perseverance and determination
In the end, the tortoise always prevails.
slow and steady he keeps on moving never giving up he’s a survivor through the good and bad the tortoise is patient and consistent
The Courage To Start
You'll be surprised what you can achieve,
When you put your mind to it and try,
You can do anything that you believe,
So don't be afraid to try.
The sky's the limit when it comes to what you can do,
Just look inside yourself and find that power,
There's nothing that you can't do or conquer,
If you just have the courage to start.
The One Who Endures Will Reach The End
In life we all endure
A journey that is never ending
With hardships and heartache
But the one who endures will reach the end
Their trials have made them stronger
And they have found their courage
In the end, they will be rewarded
For their faith and perseverance.
In The End, The Tortoise Always Prevails
In the end, the tortoise always prevails
He's been around for centuries and he knows how to survive
He's slow and steady, never giving up or backing down
On his back is a hard shell that protects him from harm
He's the symbol of perseverance and determination
When the chips are down, the tortoise is always there
This humble creature is an inspiration to us all
He reminds us that slow and steady wins the race.
This Poem gives a good definition of a growth mindset.
A Growth Mindset
A growth mindset is believing that you can grow and improve your abilities. With a growth mindset, you focus on effort and learning, not intelligence or talent. You see the struggle as a necessary part of the process of learning and becoming smarter. People with a growth mindset welcome challenges because they know that overcoming them will make them smarter.
Let’s unpack that with an example:
Growing up, if you wanted to be like your friends or the people in TV and movies, you had to have a “fixed mindset”. That is, you believed that you were just born with certain abilities and that there was nothing you could do to change or improve them. If you had a “growth mindset”, on the other hand, you believed that with hard work and dedication anything was possible. You saw yourself as a student learning and growing every day. This difference in mindset can have huge implications for your success in life.

This mindset has the power to change everything, including how we view our education, our careers, and ourselves.

The leaves fall gently from the tall trees
Each one a different colour, red, orange, yellow
The leaves swirl around in the autumn breeze
Landing softly on the ground below
The trees are a beautiful sight to see

Nature is so amazing and full of surprises
I can’t help but stand and stare.

It Always Rains at Playtime

Playing games and making noise
Without being able to go outside

Maybe it will clear up soon.

And together we’d be best friends.
