Introduction to Living Things& Non living Things:
Living things usually grow during their life cycle. Many living things move on their own although some, like plants, do not. Living things need food, water, and a place to live. Almost all need air, but not all. Examples of living things are plants, animals etc. Both dead things and objects that were never alive make up the category of nonliving things and non living things are chair, car, etc.
Living things are sensitive to their environment. Living things also respond to internal changes. For example, you quickly pull your hand away from a hot iron because of an impulse or feeling. Living things are able to reproduce. People, snakes, insects, fish, or any other organisms have young which in time develop into adults. Trees produce seeds which will grow into an adult tree.The most common source of energy is food. Living things ‘take in’ food in order to live and survive. A plant must make its own food in order to grow and thrive. A person must eat food and drink water to survive. Food is a necessity for all living things.
NON LIVING THINGS:
Non-living things do not have this ability.Nonliving things such as rocks, sand and dead animals lack this ability entirely. Nonliving things that were never alive often lack organic components .All man-made things are non-living things, but not all natural things are
living things. While people, animals, and plants are living natural things,stars, mountains, clouds, air, and water are non-living natural things.
