CD-SC3 – The child will demonstrate knowledge related to living things and their environments.
CD-SC3.4b Discriminates between living and non-living things.
WSO: Explores the characteristics of living things.
 Activities: Compare the pair.  Using the living creature in your classroom, have students compare your real plant (for example) with a plastic plant.  A real fish with a plush fish.  Make a chart to list student responses of the qualities of the living item and the non living.  A Venn diagram would also be appropriate to store any overlapping qualities. 

Books: Alexendar and the Wind-Up Mouse by: Leo Lionni
The Shape of Me and Other Stuff by Dr. Seuss  (this can be done as a Large Group Literacy Activity or small group literacy as you sort the shapes into living and nonliving categories)
