Living and Non Living


I've been working to introduce the concept of living and non living to Juiciness and Sassyfras.  I'm starting off by just introducing living things to them. 


For our first lesson, I clipped pictures of plants, animals, and people out of magazines for them to paste on a piece of paper. We'll leave the 3 other kingdoms off until they are older, for now, plants and animals are sufficient.

What a fun activity... The only problem I would have is to not make it too scientific with my 3 year olds. I tend to go overboard and next thing I know I would be talking about carbon.

Great lesson. We read the book from Let's Read and Find Out series called What's Alive that gave a good overview without being too scientific.

I love this idea. Such a great way to introduce a complex concept to little ones.
