Where in the World is Nature?

Cotton is so cool! Literally.

We have been finding nature everywhere!  After touring the museum galleries with Megan and witnessing nature in art… students headed over to the UCRA Water Education Center with Christy (that’s me) to jump into the science of it.

In Session 2 of Art/Science Fusion we found limestone in the art museum building  (made from sea creatures…. can you believe that?), cotton in our blue jeans, mesquite wood in tables and sheep’s wool in blankets.  Humans are more connected to nature than we realize.  And we are pretty smart about how to use these resources – because we watched how they are used in nature!  Cotton is light and breezy to disperse those seeds and wool keeps sheep warm and dry  and so it keeps us warm and dry too.

After thinking about all of this, we classified and sorted many PRODUCTS  made from these natural resources into the right bins.  We did amazingly well! We also really understood how taking care of the world around us is so important in making sure we have these resources for many more years.
