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."

"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."

"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."

Nature Club -October 12, 13, 14

We all went BATTY this week in Nature Club! Since it's only a few weeks until Halloween, I borrowed a Bat Kit from the DNR so we could learn about those much-maligned little animals. We learned that bats are not birds, they are mammals. They fly at night using echolocation and eat many, many mosquitos. We looked at bat books, played bat games, played with toy bats and got to see a real bat and a real bat skeleton encased in plastic. Great stuff and the preschoolers loved it!
