For this lesson, we will be using a google drawings chart to decide whether things are living organisms or not. To do this, I’ve created a google drawing with each characteristic listed as well as what that characteristic means. Then as a class we will go through and add an X or a check mark to each characteristic and if they have all check marks then we will know!
I’ll include the pictures that we will go through, as well as the google drawing. And you can use the same google drawing over and over again, just removing the marks each time. Maybe you could have a table on a whiteboard where you write what qualifies and what does not as you go through them so that students remember. This would be a good lesson for 4th or 5th graders.

A very clever and artistic way to use Google drawing! Great motivator for student engagement
