Product Description

What are the characteristics of life? What classifies something as "living"? This inquiry activity and the corresponding worksheet will help students test their presupposed thinking by observing living and non-living specimens. Each specimen has ONE characteristic of living things, but only the living specimens will demonstrate ALL of the characteristics.

Please note: This lab is also part of my Year of Biology Labs- BIG BUNDLE!.

This lab is a perfect introduction to life science or biology and gets students thinking immediately. The inquiry-style lesson allows for challenging peer discussions as well as individual thinking. After the lab has been discussed, an interactive notebook page is provided to highlight the characteristics of life for easy studying later.

Because different Biology courses use different characteristics, each item in this resource is editable to fit perfectly into your class.

Included in this resource:

  • 1 inquiry activity to introduce characteristics of life (editable)
  • 1 interactive notebook flip book page (editable)
