Jokes You Can Use:
An American tourist was lunching in a restaurant in China where the specialty was duck. The waiter explained each dish as he brought it to the table. "This is the breast of the duck; this the leg of the duck; this is the wing of the duck; etc." Then came the dish that the American knew was chicken. He waited for the explanation. Silence. "Well?" he finally asked, "What's this?" The waiter replied, "It's a friend of duck."
Waiter: And how did you find your steak, sir?
Customer: Well, I just pushed aside a bean and there it was!
What do you call a bear in the rain? A drizzly bear
What did the bean say to the bean?

Nature Study Practitioners:
I was recently reading the Spring, 2013 issue of Green Teacher magazine. One of the articles in this issue was entitled, "The Nature-Study Movement" written by Kelly Johnson. She found that by revisiting this historic movement it reinforces the importance of integrating art and science when helping children get engaged with the natural world. Within the article, the author shares stories about her three favorite Nature-Study Practitioners. They are:
1. Anna Botsford Comstock
2. Beatrix Potter
3. Rachel Carson
