  • Living Things and Non-Living Things

    We see many things in the world around us. They can be divided into two groups:

    living things and non-living.

    Living Things Human beings, plants, animals and birds are living things.

    Non-Living Things Tables, chairs, toys, hills and vehicles are non-living things.

    Living things Living things are different from non-living things in many ways.

    All living things grow.

    An infant grows into an adult (man or woman); a seed grows into a big tree.

    All living things need food to eat and water to drink.

  • All living things breathe.

    All living things feel.

    All living things reproduce (Have babies of their own)

    All living things move.

  • Living things move from one place to another. Human beings and animals move.

    Though plants do not move, they are living things as they grow, breathe and


    Non-living things Non-living things cannot grow, breathe, feel, reproduce or move on their own.

    They do not need food and water. They can be divided into two groups: Natural

    and man-made.

    Natural non-living things: They are found in nature and are not made by man. Examples: Sun, moon, stars, sky, clouds, rocks, mountains and many more.

    Man-made non-living things: They are made by man.

    Examples: Toys, chairs, tables, beds, houses, buildings, trains and many more.

    Do you know? A car moves on the road, but it cannot move on its own. It needs a driver to start

    the engine and move it. So a car is a non-living thing.

    Plants do not move but they are living things as they breathe, reproduce, feel and

    need food and water to grow.
