In science class with the first graders of George Mitchell Elementary, the students classified me as a living organism. I am not a “non-living” object like a rock or a chair. Did you know that to be considered a living organism you need the following characteristics:
- Need water and food
- Need shelter
- Ability to breathe
- Ability to excrete waste
- Ability to grow
- Ability to reproduce
When I was born I came from a litter of six puppies. My mom was a Golden Retriever and my dad was a Poodle. I eat kibble and drink water. I am no longer a puppy and I am now full grown. My mom takes me out for walks so I can go outside to go to the bathroom. I sleep in my crate that is in my mom’s house. I exercise a lot by running, playing ball and swimming. I love to breathe clean outdoor air the best.
These first graders are soooooo smart!
