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 Nuts on May 13

Nature Nuts met on May 13. We stayed inside today mostly because of the weather, but also because I borrowed a microscope from Mrs. Harvey, the science teacher. We looked at slides of pond water, hoping to see something alive and wiggly. One or two of the kids saw a live creature, but most of us did not. I feel that it has been a very cool spring and maybe all the tiny creatures haven't really gotten going. We also created turtles to take home and used pond creature stampers to make pictures.
