Living-Non Living Montessori Cards

Today I have some free Montessori-style Living and Non-Living Sort Cards for you!  :)  Use these cards to sort into living and non-living groups.

Behind the scenes I’ve been getting things ready for our upcoming science units. ED will be doing a bit of animal classification review and I made some new cards for her. I realized, though, that if any of my readers have younger kids in the 2-4 age range you’ll want to start off with a simple living and non-living card sort. Here are a set of cards that you can download free to use with your kids:

Characteristics of Living Things:  Here is some information to cover with older kids.

  • Living things are made up of units called cells
  • Living things reproduce
  • Living things are based on a universal genetic code
  • Living things grow and develop
  • Living things obtain and use materials and energy
  • Living things respond to their environment
  • Living things maintain stable internal environments – most organisms must keep internal conditions such as temperature and water content fairly constant to survive (homeostasis)
  • Taken as a group, living things change over time

We have a new Animal Packet that I made for the kids: You might want to check out details here: Animal Unit: Types of Animals Packet (30+ pages)
