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

This week in Nature Club, we went outside to search for spring. The classes early in the week had it easy because the sun was shining and a gentle breeze was blowing. We found water in puddles, green grass, buds on trees (leaves AND flowers). We saw a robin. We found some burlap beside a sidewalk where someone is getting new grass to grow. We also found some pansies Ms. Lyn got to beautify our center and, although it's early for them to pop out of the ground, many kids knew that their parents were getting gardens and planting beds ready for flowers. By Thursday, the cold wind was blowing and the puddle was all dried up. But we could tell spring was here anyway! Now we hope the snow that's coming will melt very fast!
