These resources were designed to supplement a unit on the characteristics of living things. The following are included:
1. An inquiry lab. No previous student knowledge necessary. You'll need 12 stations. Possible items for stations include: microscope with pond water, rock, plant, deer antler, snake skin, candle/flame, moldy food, yeast, yogurt, lichen on a stick, or pretty much anything. You want a mix of living and non-living things. Teacher directions and student lab sheet included.
2. Follow up assignment to the inquiry lab (to be used for homework). Answer key included.
3. Flip book: Color, cut (one line), and construct. Read through. Important terms included. Works nicely with interactive notebooks.
4. Crossword puzzle. All answers can be found in flip book. Forces students to read back through the information. Answer key included.
ALL pages are shown in the preview.
