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."
-Rachel Carson, A Sense of Wonder

Nature Club, May 1 and 2

Happy May Day! We were very lucky with the weather for our Nature Club meetings this week. We met in-between the rainstorms that came at night. I read Nature Spy by Shelley Rotner and Ken Kreisler, which tells children how they can see such interesting patterns by looking closely at natural things. After I read the book, we all went outside to be nature spies and find cool patterns in nature. We found lots of leaves, branches, flowers and rocks. I showed the kids the new, soft needles growing on the pine tree. We also enjoyed rolling down the hill! A fun, fun day!
