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"

-Native American proverb

"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."

Nature Club, October 21,22,23

Since it was Halloween week at school, I dressed up as Mother Nature to play a game. Most of the preschoolers had never heard of Mother Nature and, when asked what they thought I was, came up with a flower girl, a bride, a fairy, a witch and a flower. Our nature game consisted of 12 different natural items that they were supposed to find in the classroom and then mark off the picture of the item. When all items were found, they brought the sheet to Mother Nature, who gave them a piece of Halloween candy.
It was lots of fun and an interesting reminder of what things were natural. I made sure to have some people on the sheet, so the kids would remember that people are part of nature, too!
Happy Halloween!
