Living things are alive and need energy, water, and food to survive. Non-living things are not alive, they don't need energy, water, or food. Living things can reproduce, grow, and change over time.
Living and Non-Living Things
Living Things: Any organism that displays the characteristics of life, such as the ability to grow, reproduce, move, respire, respond to stimuli, and adapt to its environment. Non-Living Things: Objects that do not show any sign of life, such as rocks, water, or a chair. Organisms: A living thing that is made up of cells, such as animals, plants, and some single-celled organisms.
Living things can communicate with each other without using words. For example, bees communicate with each other by dancing. Not all non-living things are inanimate. For example, fire is a non-living thing but it can move and consume. Living things can change their environment, whereas non-living things cannot. Examples include plants taking in carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, and people building roads and cities.
