Question and answer
what are the examples of non-living things that look like living things
Living things are made of cells. Living things obtain and use energy. Living things grow and develop. Living things reproduce. Living things respond to their environment. Living things adapt to their environment Sand, [ wood and glass are all non-living things. None of them shows any of the characteristics listed above. Non-living things can be divided into two groups. First, come those which
were never part of a living thing, such as stone and gold. The second group are those which were once part of living things. Coal is a good example. It was formed when trees died and sank into the soft ground. This happened many millions of years ago when the Earth was covered with forests. Paper is non-living but it is also made from trees. Jam is also non-living but it was made from the fruit of a plant. All plants and animals have these things in common. They spell a name (Mrs. Gren) to help you remember. Movement Even plants move, such as opening and closing petals, and turning to face the sun. Respiration Breathing. Animals breathe in oxygen, and breathe out carbon dioxide. Plants breathe in carbon dioxide, and breathe out oxygen. Sensitivity Plants are sensitive to light and gravity (stems grow up and roots grow down). Animals are sensitive to many things such as noise and light. Growth Do I need to explain this? Reproduction Babies! Plants and animals can make more of themselves. Excretion All living things give off waste, such as moisture (eg. sweat) or going to the toilet! Nutrition Food. Animals need to eat food, but plants make their own food using light. ]
