Quick Science Idea

This week we are talking about living and nonliving things in science.  We have discussed the difference between the two, read about it, and today we did a quick activity I thought I would share with you.  I printed different pictures of backyards, gardens, forests, etc. from the Internet.  Then I broke students into small groups and they made a T chart on large construction paper.  One side was for living things and one was for nonliving things.  They examined their picture as a group and then recorded which things in the picture were living and nonliving on their charts.  I hung their charts with their pictures in the hall.  I forgot to take a picture but I will try to add one soon.
