This first day of school we did our biotic and abiotic lab. I had several objects out on the lab tables and I had the students group them however they wanted (feather, paper, plastic and a coin). I led a discussion on how each group had grouped their objects. We then talked about what biotic and abiotic was. We looked around the room to classify things as being one or the other. We then went outside to do the same thing.
When we came back inside, I had them draw a picture. The picture had to include 5 biotic and 5 abiotic items. Here are some of the pictures in progress.
An example of a completed picture.
As educators, we remember and honor our fallen colleagues and their students from Sandy Hook School. We honor them each day in our classrooms in which we continue their dream of teaching our children. We honor their memory with our service.
Join with teachers everywhere in committing random acts of kindness to show our love for Sandy Hook.
