Spring simply lends itself to exploring living and nonliving things in the classroom. It’s so simple to begin to explain the characteristics of each because they are easily found around us as animals and plants grow and change. It’s a concept so simple, yet the students always have so much fun exploring it!

We started the unit by discussing the attributes of living and nonliving things. One of my favorite books to read aloud is What’s Alive? by Kathleen Zoehfled.
We then made a list of needs for living things. We discussed their characteristics, too.
The kids had SO much fun making them. They were super simple, too!
Next week we will be finishing up living and nonliving things as we begin to explore plants! We will be using parts from this little unit. If you are looking for more activities and teaching resources, check out this living and nonliving unit below.
