Classification of living things

For science this week we have been looking at living things.
We started by examining the difference between living and non-living using some sorting cards.

Then the older girls studied the characteristics of living things (from Montessori for everyone)

After that we moved onto the 5 kingdoms of living things - I found a great lesson idea here (definitely worth checking out the original article she suggests) using hands as an example. 

The girls decided that the song at the end of the lesson would be better with some hand actions and pictures, so they created their own to go along with the song : )
