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."

"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- The Last One for the Year

This week we had our very last Nature Clubs for the school year. I showed the preschoolers how to make bark rubbings and challenged them to find other natural things to get rubbings from. I also showed them how they could try rubbing dandelions, grass, rocks, etc., on their papers to see if some color would rub off. They were very creative in the things they tried AND even got some grass to rub off on their clothes (grass stains- I didn't tell them to do that!)
A fun class time and then we had suckers as an end-of-the-year treat. Have a great summer for nature!
