This free living and non-living things packet is a simple but wonderful tool for sorting practice, creative expression, community learning, or a science center! Simply cut out the labels and pictures and allow students to sort the cards. The included poster is a convenient reference guide for students who are not as familiar with the concept of "living" and "nonliving."
One "Living Things" poster, two "Living" and "Nonliving" labels, and 18 picture cards are included in this free packet.
Ideas for Use:
My class and I used this activity to practice our teamwork skills. I prepped by printing, cutting, and pasting the “Living” and “Nonliving” labels to a sheet of posterboard with a line down the center. The picture cards were passed out to the students. Each student named their card to the class, used the poster as a reference to determine living or non, and the class responded their thoughts. The student then got to paste their picture onto the posterboard in the proper category.
You can vary this by using tape instead of glue, or by using baskets instead of posterboard.
You can also print numerous copies and allow children to do the activity individually and paste onto construction paper.
Additionally, laminating the separate cards would provide for a great science center!
