What is alive and what is not?

By Isabelle Gilet

The PK1 students are now in the heart of the science curriculum: “Distinguish between living and nonliving things” and ”Discover the cycle of life of a vegetal: birth, growth, wilting, death”.

When you are 3 years old, identifying what can grow and what cannot grow can be tricky. In class they tried to grow different items such as beads, pasta, buttons, play dough and seeds. They watered the different items and waited for a few days. Soon-after, they witnessed what had grown and what had not grown. Therefore, they were able to fill a chart and come to the conclusion that not everything is alive and can grow!
