Ms. Pat's Nature Club

Ms. Pat's Nature Club is a blog for anyone who is a nature nut and loves nature, no matter what age you are. I hope you will let me know what you think and give me feedback. I love to hear from my friends!

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."
-Albert Einstein

"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you."
-Frank Lloyd Wright

"Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents, It was loaned to you by your children"

"Teaching children about the natural world should be treated as one of the most important events in their lives."

-Thomas Berry, Dream of the Earth

"If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, the excitement and mystery of the world we live in."

Week of September 27, 2010

This week had absolutely perfect weather for our first week of Nature Club. The kids were as excited as I was to get outside and look for nature. But first we had to talk about what natural and man-made meant, some terms I will use all year.
It was very easy to find a lot of natural items on the ground and happily, not so easy to find man-made items (trash). We had fun taping things to a poster and very quickly picked up the idea of what was too big or heavy to tape down. Also, we decided NOT to tape live insects to the poster because we didn't want to kill them.
P.S. I'm sorry Starla is upside down! I can't figure out how to turn it over or delete it! Will learn by the next post!
Gorgeous days like these make -20 degrees more tolerable!
