We started talking about the Characteristics and Needs of Living things today in Science.
We began our discussion with the question “ How do you know if something is alive?”
We brainstormed some ideas which led us to talk about the differing needs of things that are alive.
We used our knowledge of QR codes to watch 2 videos on Youtube that talked about the needs of an animal and the needs of a plant.
We came back together and made a T chart of things animals need and the things plants need to stay alive.
Students then went back with a partner and used the App “Screenchomp” to share their new knowledge!
Let me tell you…..We sat for 15 minutes and went over everything they needed to do in ScreenChomp.

There was quite a few steps and I was so amazed that when they went off to work NOT 1 PERSON got it wrong or forgot!!
Usually I have some friends gluing their pants together, others cutting the wrong pieces, others cutting cushions, while some friends sit their confused.
Not today folks! Today we were almost second graders….independently working..showing off our skills!
Technology is a powerful thing.
Here are some friends working hard to remember what plants need to survive!
