We have been investigating Living Things as part of our Science learning in Kohara. We have been using our observation and classification skills to work out what makes a living thing and what they have in common.
We think that living things all need oxygen, they all eat and they all grow or move. We used this criteria to classify objects into living and non living.
Next we thought about living things in more detail. We had a number of pictures of living things and we had to use our observations and scientific thinking to group them. We came up with three categories - animals, insects and arachnids (spiders). We shared lots of scientific ideas about what made a living thing either an animal, arachnid or insect.
