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 Nuts

We had our very first session of Nature Nuts on Friday. We walked around the school to see what different trees were there. We each picked a tree to be our own "special" tree to watch for the next month. We measured the distance around their trunks and felt their bark. When we came inside, I read "Are Trees Alive?" by Debbie S. Miller and we looked at the little pine cones and bits of bark that we found on the ground. Everyone had a good time and is excited for our next Nature Nuts class on April 8. I am really, really hoping that by this time next month, the trees, the ground and the air will be very different (warmer and no snow!!).
