Before we take the plunge into this terms unit......"Mini beasts" we did a classification activity to ensure we knew exactly what a Living thing is.
We worked with a buddy and had to put some pictures under the right heading "Living" or "Non Living". The results of this activity then lead us to research what characteristics living things have and we had further conversation about what a living thing actually is.....We now know that a Living thing has to: Grow or move, Reproduce, (have babies) Breathe, and needs Food or Water.
Now we can very confidently categorise the pictures in the correct place.
Have a listen to Leah, Sebastian and Zion's Fotobabbles explaining this new learning.
