I have added all of my Characteristics of Life Lessons into one quick bundle. Over 20 percent off purchase price if lessons were bought individually. This bundle contains materials for a minimum of 3 to 4 days of lessons. Included are the following: Ice Breaker Power Point, Power Point Notes, Notes with fill in chunking worksheet, Sorting Activity, Enrichment sheet, and Sorting Activity. Teachers keys are included.

Characteristics of Life: Power Point
Characteristics of Life: Enrichment Sheet
Characteristics of Life: Notes with Answer Sheet
Characteristics of Life: Sorting Activity.
I also start Characteristics of Life by walking around the room quickly with a beaker filled with 5 or six raisins and clear soda pop. The air bubbles accumulate on the raisins causing them to bob up and down. I then brainstorm with the students what characteristics of life the raisins display. Finally, I quickly eat a raisin. This activity is free and by Flinn Scientific, it is called Sewer Lice and is a blast to demo in the classroom.
