Title: Is George Washington Living, Nonliving, or Dead?
Description: In this simplistic, introductory lesson in Life Science, students will converse with peers to prepare a list of seven common characteristics in organisms after determining if pictured items are living or nonliving. Students will use background knowledge and pictures to identify patterns that represent all living organisms. After watching a short video, students will separate living and nonliving things by coloring or drawing an outdoor environment.  Students will answer this question: Is George Washington Living, Nonliving, or Dead? as an Exit Ticket. This lesson results from collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.
