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!

Nature Club- January 11,12 & 13

It took me a long, long time to get this posted because I left my camera at school and couldn't download the pictures from last week's Nature Club until today. I read a favorite book of mine: "In the Snow: Who's Been Here?" by Lindsay Barrett George. We talked about looking for traces of the animals that are awake and moving around in the winter when the ground is covered with snow.
Then we made animal footprints and nature prints with stampers. Okay, so some of the animals and plants are not around when there is snow and ice! We didn't care- it was fun anyway!
I was really impressed with the knowledge that many of the kids had about animals in winter. They are very excited about watching for nature!
