Library Learning Patch - Children Discovering Nature

Week 19 - celebration time!!
The final class was a celebratory one. The Italian Bistro donated 4 delicious large pizzas.

We're hungry!
After enjoying the pizzas and drinks, the children were given "worm" bookmarks made by one of the members of the class. Each child received a certificate signifying that they had completed the course.

 They also were given their notebooks which contained various information about the lessons. It is our hope that they will add to the notebooks as they learn more about our natural world.
The Red River County Public Library and members of the Texas Master Naturalist organization  plan to hold the classes again next year. Signup will be held at the library in February, 2013. Watch for the announcement in January, 2013!

Week 18 - Lap Books

Well, our discovery of nature has been loads of fun, but now the classes are almost over for the year. Our group had a fun time assembling  their lapbooks. For those of you new to lapbooking, our books contain minibooks featuring our lessons about nature. The children's books were all different, as each child added their creative touches.

The children also harvested their last vegetables from the garden -- tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumbers.
