Dramatic Living and Non-Living K

Description

Students explore the differences between living and nonliving things through the eyes of the nursery rhyme, “Hey Diddle Diddle”. After bringing the characters to life, the students discuss the concepts of living and nonliving and act out frogs and rocks. This is followed by distinguishing what items in the classroom are living and nonliving and charting them in either category. Students then act out various pictures, and classmates guess whether the picture shows something living or nonliving, infusing fun and movement into the classroom.

Ecosystems in Action 4

Description

Students explore animals and plants that inhabit ecosystems by using movement to deepen the retention of vocabulary. After reviewing the ecosystem players, students will play a call and response game by responding with their bodies, sound and movement to become the elements. This will be taken a step deeper when students bring their visuals to life and explain which role they play in flow of energy of an ecosystem. The lesson culminates with Food Chain Action where groups of students devise their own food chain and bring it to life for their classmates. By allowing students to embody the parts of the flow of energy, they see the system from the inside looking out and retain knowledge in a deeper perspective.
