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."

"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-Feb. 8,9,10

Our theme for this week's Nature Club was School of Rock. I brought a collection of various pretty and interesting rocks for the boys and girls to examine. In addition, they got to take river rocks and build towers, as well as take shiny white rocks to make patterns- ones they followed or they could make their own.
The preschoolers learned that rocks are created in several different ways: from heat or pressure deep in the earth, or from sand, mud or plant/animal material being laid down by lakes or seas and then, over millions of years, hardening into rock.
