Lesson Plan in Science
Unit 1Living and Non-Living ThingsP. 1/3FunctionWhat are living things?What are non-living things?Time: ___ Hrs.
Theme: 1Standard: 1 (1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4)1. Learning Outcome:
- Identify and name living things and non-livingthings.- List the characteristics of living things.- Talk about the differences between living and non-living things.
2. Objectives:
- Develop the concept that all things can beclassified as living and non-living things.- Generalize that all living things need air, water,food and shelter.- Discuss characteristics of living and non-livingthings.Investigate and understand basic needs and life processes of plants and animals.
3. Content:
Living things and Non-Living Things.
4. Materials:
Plant, wood, (plastic bird, hamster, turtle, crab), beans, leaves, rocks, buttons, paper clips, coins, plastic bottle caps, seashells, feathers, Styrofoam plate, glue,marker, picture of a person or a pet.
5. Activity for Learning.Lesson 11) Drill/Warm – up:
a. Discuss with the children and develop theidea of ‘living things’ and ‘non-living things’ bytrying to find out what living things do e.g. theygrow, they breathe, they eat, etc. b. Have children individually or in groups look through magazines and cut out pictures of ‘things’they think are living and non living or better still,have each child draw or paint pictures of each groupand add captions.c. Have each group sort out the pictures intotwo appropriate piles and then report back to thewhole class to give their reasons for theclassifications.d. Paste the pictures onto two large chartsentitled ‘Living Things’ and Non-Living Things’.
2) Presentation/Comparison/Abstraction:
a. Ask the children what living things theyknow of e.g. plants and animals, Make a long list of as many plants and animals that the children cancome up with. b. Focus on animals only and develop the ideaof classification (putting them into similar groups)of animals in the broadest sense e.g. fish, birds,mammals, insects, spiders…c. Divide pupils up into interest groups andhave them draw/paint pictures of their favoriteanimals on the cardboard. Have them paint/draw
 pictures of these, cut them out and make into groupmobiles. Don’t forget to paint both sides. Addcaptions.d. Select various classifications e.g. fish andhave the children list as many as different types of fish as they can. Use books for research. Try thiswith other classifications and make a colourful bulletin board called ‘Fish we know’, Birds weknow’, etc.
3) Science Concept:
All things can be classified as living and non-living things.
4) Fixing Skills:A.
a. If possible, have fish, a cat, a dog, a bird inthe classroom or arrange a visit to a zoo, aviary,farm, etc. b.
