PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity can be used to supplement your teaching of the six characteristics of living things. Included is a picture of a finished creation that will help your students see where they are heading with this project.

After discussing the six characteristics of living things, you will have your students design something that fits all six criteria. I let mine be as creative as they like (combining two already existing organisms into one – producing things like bearigators and ostrich fish can be allowable if you want it to). Provide them with a large piece of paper (not included - I use 12” X 18”) and have them draw and color their organism in the middle of it. Make sure they leave room for the boxes to be glued around it. They then need to fill out the boxes, describing their invented organism. These are then cut and pasted to the large paper.

Great as a small group project as well. My students like to present their projects to the class after all are complete. These work well to hang on bulletin boards and hallway displays.
