The Characteristics of Living Things

Eighth graders explore the characteristics of living things. In this living things lesson plan, 8th graders review as a class the cell theory and the characteristics of living things. They answer questions about how to determine if something is living. Students observe a demonstration on the overhead projector with a rock, 3 drops of nail polish and Duco cement in petri dishes of water. The class discusses their observations and they play a review game about living things.
