I learned that macro-invertebrates are the bottom of the food chain and there the most important food source in Mr. B's.
I learned that there are so many different types of birds in such a small area. I also learned how to tell the differences of a bird.
I learned this week that nature works in mysterious ways and it should be treated with respect.
learned a lot about nature when I was at mr bees. I learned about how some leaves have a lot of different smells and smell revealing. I also learned how sitting down and hearing nature is relaxing and beautiful. Thats what I learned about nature.
I learned that if you are patient with the animals and the weather than you see a lot more for example we seen two snakes and we were very patient with them and so we got to see them up close.
i learned that there are a lot of amazing things in nature. everything was so pretty.just to sit there felt amazing and wonderful.having the fresh morning air against my skin as i just sat there.i observed a lot of things and how beautiful everything is in nature or in mister b's.
What I learned in Mr Bś was how many different types of birds and plants there are and how those birds live in there daily lives
I learned that if you just sit and hear you will hear more then you thought you would.
I learned that macroinvertabrates are the bottom of Mr. B's food chain and they provide food for a lot of the organisms out at Mr B's.
What I learned about nature this week in Mr.B's is about macroinvertebrates and why they are important. The different types of birds and about what consumers and producers are and what they do.
I learned that if you sit and wait something is right in front of you. I saw two snakes right in front of me for the first time at Mr.B's. The birds even flow right in front of my face. In nature stop and wait and see what you can see.
I learned that there is more to nature than what you see, and that your other senses can help you observe nature.
I learned that there are many different levels of nature. It is a very complex community and everything depends on one another to survive.
I learned that there is a lot you can miss in Mr,B's if you don't stop and look.
Going back to Mr.B's was very fun! Personally, I love going to Mr.B's because I get to learn about all of these different species in a decent area. If you're more quite, the more you see. I got to see the bright colors in trees, tadpoles in the water, and I saw lots of birds while I listened to their bird callings.
I learned this week that there is a lot more to nature than just seeing. When I payed attention to my other senses while inside Mr. B's, I heard things I never heard before, smelt new scents, and felt smooth and rough trees. I heard the usual bird calls, but when I tried harder, I could hear frog calls as well. I smelt root bear and lemons on sassafras, and nasty smells on other plants.
I felt rough and smooth pine cones, as well as identified trees by feeling them.
This visit, the last one in the long string of visits this week, to Mr. B’s was meant to exemplify the advice given to us by Mrs. Sommers: “Move much, see little. Move little see much.” We were told to talk as little as possible and move as little as possible, and while I didn’t see as many birds as I would have liked too, it opened my eyes to how much life is packed into one backyard. Quietly walking down a path, a gray squirrel scurried down a tree a looked at me and my partner. This up close encounter is something that has never happened to me before in Mr. B’s, and made me think about how much life hides up in the trees, that only comes down when they think we’re gone.
During this week, I learned a lot about nature. I learned about macroinvertebrates and what they tell us about the water quality. I also learned that plants have different smell. Sight is not the only sense you can experience nature with. In conclusion, nature is a wonderful place with things I never noticed.
I learned that Mr.B's was a lot more occupied than I thought. By taking the time to stop and listen, I could hear and see many different organisms. For example, I heard bird calls from a mocking bird and I heard bullfrog calls. Throughout the week, I also noticed that the pollen on the pond decreased as we visited Mr.B's. The pond also filled up with more water when it rained Monday night. These are some things I noticed and learned when we visited Mr.B's through out the week.
I saw three snakes over there
I learned that Mr.B's backyard classroom has many different and unique species of birds for instance one is a American Crow
I learned that macro invertebrates are used to test water pollution levels. I also learned the food chain for Mr. B's
This week out in nature i learned the there is a lot more out there that just what i see. I got to pay attention to the touch of the bark, the sounds, and smells. I got to see a lot more this week.
Ignore people and things around us to just pay attention to the nature and the beauty of the outside
I learned all about animals and how they live in the environment.
I learned that nature is more then just what you see, its also what you hear I never realized how many diffrent bird calls there are.Touch like all the diffrent bark and leafs on the trees.and smell, I could smell the freash spring air.
The one thing that I learned was that that if I were to sit down and just listen and observe, it is a lot easier than just walking around missing all of the stuff that could've been important to see.
When you sit down and just observe you see a lot more animals and birds flying because there is no movement.
In Mr.B's backyard I saw a snake with a pretty amazing pattern on it, I saw a female duck with three baby ducks on the back of it, and I also saw a red wing blackbird flying around the trees. The snake was in the pond slithering around. The mom duck and the baby ducks where calmly swimming around and the mom duck was protecting her three baby ducks. Lastly, the red wing blackbird was flying around and going on the nearby trees.
At Mr.B's I learned how the food chain works and how biologists determine the population of organisms in an area.
I learned that we take our other senses for granted and this helped me use other senses than the ones I am usually using. I also learned the different cycles of frogs,birds, and much more animals. I lastly learned the habitat, if the animals are consumers or producers, and I learned what kind of vegetation/food they eat.
The macro vertebrates lab was very educational. We got to learn that there is a whole other food web under the water that has very small organisms in it.
What u learned is that if you move little see more,if you move fast see little.
One thing i've learned about nature while in Mr.B's is when your quiet, and just observing everything, you get a better perspective of the environment. I saw and heard so much stuff that Ive never heard before. I think the more you slowly observe things, the better chance of discovering things.
Over the many visits we have had from this past week, I have learned to be more aware of my surroundings. Also that is it good to just sit at a bench and just listen or look for different animals. For example, we had a tree swallow come within like five feet of us. We also heard a bullfrog give its call multiple times. All of those and more are things that we would have not experienced with we didn't stop moving and sit down.
This lab was fun and Mrs sommers was right about, " move much see little, move little see much". This week at Mr. B's I spent time in one spot and then gravitating towards another spot I got to see more of the little things that no one really pays attention to.
i learned that their are small things in the ocean and any body of water that we can't see. I've also learn that plastic it bad for the ocean life.
I learned that everything changed from the fall and now the leaves grew
This week in Mr.B's I got to use almost all my senses to observe and record many properties of the environment. We got to hear the sounds of the song birds and the loud deep croaks of the bull frogs. I got to see the birds swoop down for there pray of bugs and rest on branches. I could feel the soft leaves and the rough bark. I could smell the sap of the pine trees and the root of the sassafras smelling just like root bear. Mr.B's has given me many great experiences in the outside world.
I learned about all the little things in nature that I never really notice. Examples include, all the different little species under the water, all the different smells from different plants, and the sounds of different things in nature. I thought it was cool to notice these things that are always there, but I just never notice them.
