Animal pictures ready to cut out. I gave them to children in small groups and called out the different ways I wanted them to sort them. We were specifically focusing on animal attributes. Eg has wings / doesn’t have wings, has two legs / doesn’t have two legs.

This resource contains a presentation on what a living thing is and also the life processes. The children are show similarities and difference between plants and animals and then are shown how they can classify these living things according to similarities/difference. The activity is then to sort the animals using a Carroll diagram and a Venn diagram. Animal picture cards are included in the resource. The worksheet is differentiated.

Living Things Habitats

Living Things Habitats

This presentation and worksheet are to be used as an initial lesson for habitats. It explains what a habitat is; and gets children to brainstorm different habitats. They also must begin to think about different animals and plants that live in the various habitats. At the end of this lesson I always give students a large piece of paper and in groups they much draw pictures depicting the habitat. This then is used as the backing paper for my display.

Learning About Living Things: Frog in a Pond Game

Learning About Living Things: Frog in a Pond Game

This lesson is based on the game 'Red Light, Green Light’, with a twist. The player nominated as ‘it’ is a frog and the rest of the class are insects, trying to cross the pond without being eaten. Students will understand that living things live in different places where their needs are met, will be able to articulate how the game illustrates the relationship between a frog and insects and learn to follow the rules of a simple game.

Understanding Food Chains

Understanding Food Chains

Students use examples from the ocean to draw food chains showing the relationships between organisms. They then apply their learning to finding food chains around them. They use their food chains to suggest the outcomes when one of the animals is removed from the chain. They will group living things on the basis of observable features and can be distinguished from non-living things. Students will represent and communicate ideas and findings in a variety of ways such as diagrams, physical representations and simple reports. They will understand that living things, including plants and animals, depend on each other and the environment to survive. Students will be able to research the diets of a range of living things, create a simple food chain based on their research and communicate their finding to the peers.
