Mentor Text 8.18.13

We are linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their Mentor Text linky.  This week the theme is Science.  We have changed the order of Science units we teach.  This year our first unit will be Organisms so we selected a book that we use while teaching Living and Non Living things. The book, What's Alive, is very easy for kiddos to understand.  It shows the difference between things that are living and things that are not.  The main character finds many examples.  She not only tells what is living but why she knows that it is an example of a living thing.  The pictures are great because they show many examples of things both outdoors and indoors.  

Below is a FREEBIE you can use with your students after reading the book, What's Alive.  There is a cut out and paste sorting activity and a scavenger hunt activity as well.  



Have a great week!

  1. This looks like a great book for me to use when I review living and no living things with my kiddos before our big state test. Thanks for the suggestion.
