The teacher may explainto children that each of these environment systems contains living and.non living objects:Assessment Techniques.Children use self-correct as they do this task*.Observe the child while doing the task and provide feedback*.Examine the childs product*.Ask the child why he put these pictures in this side *:Feedback Suggestion?What is the name of this object*?Why did you put these pictures here*?Does the picture match the correct area*?Can you name three objects that can be found in this area*:Key words
