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

This week in Nature Club, we wanted to find Living Things. They could be plants or animals (including people-we are part of nature, too!). The challenge was that only two out of five classes could go outside, due to intermittent rain showers. We met that challenge by discussing what was alive and drawing pictures of some form of life. The two classes that went out had no trouble finding plants:trees, bushes, flowers, weeds and grass. Animals were harder because it was cold enough that all the insects and worms were in hiding. We looked for squirrels, but they hid, too! We FINALLY saw some birds. An interesting exploration and lots of fun!
