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.
