Teaching about living and non living things

First I printed out pictures of living things and non living things from my computer.Then I wrote on one piece of paper living another piece not living and taped them to a wall. (these walls are in my craft space if anyone is wondering why they are painted) On one more piece of paper I wrote down ways to tell if something is living or not. The questions I used were-
Does it eat?
Does it grow?
Does it move?
Does it reproduce?
Once all signs were up, I then gave my daughter one picture at a time and went over all the questions to find out is it living or not and she taped them under the right section.

I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
