Kindergarten Science Standard

One science standard kindergarten students are taught and expected to know is the difference in living and non living things. This can be a difficult concept for little learners to understand considering all the cartoons and movies bringing non living things to life.

The kindergarten science standard states that Living Things are defined as things that eat, breathe, grow, move, and reproduce. Whereas, Non Living Things are defined as things do not eat, breathe, grow, move on their own, or reproduce.

Google Slides

This FREE Google slides science packet contains 18 kid-friendly, living and non living things activities for kindergarten students. All of these fun, interactive slides feature big bold colorful pictures to engage children. Little learners will sort pictures into living things and non living things categories, as well as increasing their vocabulary. This vocabulary exposure is an added benefit for ELLs (English Language Learners), children with speech delays, as well as, those with some developmental delays.

Interactive Slides

To make the Google slides interactive for the living and non living worksheet activities, you’ll first need to make a copy of the file for each child. Once you make a copy, open the file in ‘edit’ mode to make the slides interactive. Consequently, if you have one student or 30, each child can have their own interactive living and non living things kindergarten learning packet!

Slide Activities

The first two activities in the packet concentrate on common characteristics of living things and non living things separately. By doing so, this allows learners the review time they may need to solidify concepts before increasing the difficulty.

The activity on the first slide, features a group of familiar colorful pictures. A kid-friendly bunny has a speak bubble instructing the child to place an ‘x’ on all of the living things. The activity on the second slide is the same as the first, but with the focus being on correctly identifying all of the non living things from a group of pictures.

The last sixteen slides in this standard based science packet have a consistent, easy-to-follow, fun activity format!

Each slide has one big bold picture for your little scientist to drag a ‘✔️’ to correctly answer if it is a living thing or non-living thing. For example, one of the slides says: A butterfly is… The child will drag a ‘✔️’ to either the ‘living’ or ‘non living’ response.
