FC: Living &Nonliving Things

1: What is a living thing? | A living thing has to be able to grow and reproduce. It has to be alive now or have been alive at some point in time.

2: All living things take in food for energy. They move in some way- even plants have roots that move toward water. | All living things breathe, even plants. It might not be through lungs like we do, but they do breathe. They also have to rid their systems of waste....EWWW.

3: Because living things eat, they must grow. Living things react to changes in their environment. | All living things reproduce. Humans and animals have babies. Plants produce seeds that make other plants.

4: What is a non-living thing?

5: If something is nonliving, that means it was never alive. It can never reproduce. Things like toys, shoes, pencils, and sand are nonliving things. | Nonliving things don't need water or air or food. Can you name some other nonliving things?

6: It does not matter if the item is no longer living, if it was once alive, it is considered a living thing.

7: Size does not matter. Mountains are huge and they are nonliving things. Kittens are small and they are living things.

8: Living things have basic needs. All living things need food to eat, water to drink, and air to breathe.

9: Living | Nonliving things do not have basic needs. They are fine just the way they are. They do not need food, water, or air to be what they are.
