When teaching the difference between living things and nonliving things, it is important to check in for understanding! After teaching and or reviewing the difference between the two, this is an easy assignment to use as classwork or send home as homework. Students are asked to take a look at two pictures, both bears. One is a teddy bear, one is a wild grizzly bear. Neat lines are provided for students to explain themselves, and the top of the page also includes the words and definitions of "living" and "nonliving."
