Living/Nonliving things

We’ve started our new unit about living and nonliving things and I wanted to see what misconceptions we had about living and nonliving things before we began.  We made these quick little flip books (and by we, I mean the kids made them while watching me model what to do).  They turned out great!  We glued them into our science notebooks.

I forgot to get pictures of what the kids did, but here is what mine looked like:

The kiddos drew two living things and two nonliving things under each flap.  I checked them afterwards and I saw that although they truly understood what a living thing was, we needed some more work on what a nonliving thing actually is! 🙂
