Living Things - Living, Non-Living or Dead
Plants and animals grow but only animals eat.

Living Things - Living, Non-Living or Dead

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with the differences between living, non-living and dead things.

In science people find things out about the world around them. Scientists find out about living things - plants and animals. At school, some things are living - you are and so is your teacher. But some things are not alive like the chair you are sitting on. Some things were once alive but are now dead. Other things were never alive and so are not dead but instead are called non-living. Let's find out more about living and non-living things.
