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

We had our last Nature Nuts class on May 20. The weather just has not been cooperating with anyone this spring and last Friday was no exception. It rained and since most of the kids did not have raincoats or jackets with them, we had to stay in. We read our two pond books that we didn't have time for last time. We fingerpainted ponds and then made fish prints to go in the pond. We had a great time and everyone agreed they love Nature Nuts class. Thanks to all the parents who believe in nature education!!
Note: I was originally a little disappointed that the fish prints didn't look "fishier", but as I see them in the blog, well, that's exactly how fish underwater look to those of us looking down on them!
