Third graders review the characteristics of living and non-living organisms. After viewing a transparency of a forest scene, they complete a worksheet to identify what would be needed to make a small model of the forest having the same characteristics as the real one. To end the lesson plan, they collect the neccesary items to create a smaller version of the forest.

Lesson Planet has helped me give some great extending activities that I hadn't thought of before. It has also helped me be able to deliver a quality lesson when life gets busy, when I'm forced to be on the fly and not as prepared as I'd like to be.
