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

Nature Nuts met on Friday, May 6, to start their study of Pond Life. We had lunch, then walked to Wakefield Lake to check out the wildlife. I reminded the kids to use their eyes and ears, not their voices, because we didn't want to scare away any animals. We saw an amazing variety of creatures: great blue herons, red-winged blackbirds, a pair of mallard ducks, dragonflies and a downy woodpecker! The boys and girls had very sharp eyes and saw the dragonflies and woodpecker before I did! It was lots of fun and we can't wait to go again next Friday.
