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!

"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

The Nature Club met on November 1st and 2nd. Our topic this week was how nature recycles everything natural, and what happens to pumpkins if you leave them out all winter. We began our experiment by taking a jack-o-lantern and a very small pumpkin out to the edge of some woods near our playground. We marked the spot and left a sign that a science experiment was in progress. We also left a plastic bucket beside the pumpkins. Next spring, when the snow is gone, we will check and see what has happened to the pumpkins and the bucket.
