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

Nature Nuts, learning about Trees, met for their last session on Friday, April 29. We had lunch, then made up tree songs, looked at books and posters of trees and painted clay pots. The pots will hold our blue spruces when they come in the mail. We drew trees and cut out pictures of animals that live in Minnesota trees and glued them onto the pictures. We celebrated Arbor Day with chocolate (from trees) cookies and apple (from trees) juice. It was a lot of fun learning about trees. In our next session, 3 weeks in May, we will learn about Pond Life!
