Living vs Nonliving
During our morning meeting activity this morning we completed a lesson on sorting groups of pictures into living things and nonliving things. The pictures were of a tree, umbrella, car, dog, lamp, baby, fish and a snowman. We first talked about what makes something a living thing and what makes something nonliving. The only real picture that caused the class to second guess themselves was the picture of the tree. When we discussed what a living thing is, one of the things we said was that it can move on its own. After discussing that the tree starts off as a seed and grows on its own, plus the fact that it needs water and sun to grow, we came to the conclusion that it is also a living thing!
