Living Things and Nonliving Things by Kevin KurtzThis week, a kindergarten class came into our school library during one of its quiet times, on the search for living things. They found our bearded dragon. They found our turtles. They found our blue-tongued skink. I suggested to the teacher that there might be at least one more living thing in the library and she was suddenly remembered that there is an ivy plant on the bookshelf.
This book is perfect for this class or for any other elementary age students who are talking about what it means to be alive. It has enough meat for even junior high or high school students, and it will definitely get a thoughtful conversation going, no matter the age of the readers.

I love exploring living and nonliving things each spring because its the perfect way to kick off our plant and animal studies! We spent a week exploring what makes something alive and what living things need to stay alive! On day one, we did a simple picture sort to get my students thinking and to prepare them for our more complicated magazine hunt the next day! My students got SO into this living and nonliving things magazine hunt! They searched for pictures to cut out and glue on, and it was so cool to hear them talking through why they chose each picture! We spent one morning at the park and worked with partners to find living and nonliving things! I gave each of my students a paper and a marker and let them go!
