Living Things - Is It Alive?

Living Things - Is It Alive?

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 examples of living/non-living things like, for example, a sleeping animal and a fire.

Can you think of some examples of living things? You are alive, and so are animals. You can grow, eat, sleep and move about. Plants are living things too. They can grow but don't move or sleep. But what about a television? Is it alive? Is it an animal? It makes plenty of noise. But televisions don’t need food. So not everything that talks to you is alive!
