Living or Not?

For this activity students will look at what makes something living or not. They will complete the table by going outside and drawing living things in the left column and non-living things in the right column.

This pack has three differentiated levels.

Diff. 1 – Drawing items in the table

Diff. 2 – Drawing items in the table with an extension activity where they must circle the living things.

Diff. 3 – Drawing items in the table with the extension question ‘What makes something living?’.

This activity works well both individually or in pairs.
