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

The second class of Nature Nuts met on Friday, April 8. We had 3 new members, so we went outside and they picked their special tree. While we were taking pictures and measuring girth, the other kids were examining trees for signs of spring. Were there birds? Were there buds on the branches? Happily, we saw both. Then we headed inside and drew pictures of our trees. I read "Have You Seen Trees?" by Joanne Oppenheim, we sang a song about trees, and we examined the tree souvenirs that we picked up off the ground. Our next Nature Nuts will be April 15.
