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."
-Rachel Carson, A Sense of Wonder

Nature Club- March 1,2,3

This week's Nature Club was the sequel to looking at sea creatures last week. We got to see a video of a coral reef and how those creatures really looked underwater. We saw nurse sharks, a seahorse, an octopus, reef squid, a sea snake, two kinds of eels (spotted and green morays), sponges,sea turtles,sting rays and spotted eagle rays. We saw many kinds of interesting and pretty fish. In the background always, but probably the most important thing in the video, was the coral reef itself. The coral takes many unusual forms and different colors, but without the reef, none of the other animals would even be there- including us divers!
The kids really liked seeing those things and I think they liked the fact that Ms. Pat went underwater to see them.
