This product is a fun and engaging activity to help students begin to identify what is an organism, and what is not an organism. After students have a brief understanding of what an organism is, give them this table and pictures to check their understanding. They will look at the different pictures, and answer "yes" or "no" under each characteristic of an organism. If the student's answer to most of the questions for that picture is yes, than that picture is an organism. Could be used as an individual activity or assessment, but I like it best as group or partner work. Low amount of prep, just cut the six pictures up or have the students do it.
