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."

"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you."

"Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents, It was loaned to you by your children"

"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

Nature Club met on January 3 and 4 for the first classes of 2012. I'm sorry to be posting these pictures so much later, but there have been issues with my computer. Hopefully, everything will be resolved by the next Nature Club classes.
On Jan. 3 and 4, we talked about wild animals and tame animals. I explained that tame animals, like pets and farm animals, have people who feed, water and care for them. Wild animals have to take care of themselves and find their own food and water.
We had some very interesting discussions about our pets and about wild animals we've seen. We played a game where we guessed the animal and what kind it was. We also played a game where we acted out different wild and tame animals.
We had lots of fun and I gave the kids some homework: whenever they saw an animal, they should decide if it was wild or tame!
