1.1 Is it alive? Everything in the world around us is either living or non-living. 1 What can you see in the picture? 2 Which things are living? 3 Which things are non-living?
• living • non-living
4 Which of these things are living? 5 Which are non-living?
Activities 1 Make a poster to show living and non-living things.
2 Go on a walk around your school. Make two lists to show how many living and how many non-living things you can see.
3 Name some living and some non-living things. Choose one living thing and describe it to your partner.

Everything is either living or non-living.
1.2 Plants and animals are living things
â€˘ plant â€˘ animal â€˘ alive
There are many different types of living things. We can sort all living things into groups. The two main groups are plants and animals. If something is alive, it is a plant or an animal. 1 Which things in the picture are living?

Which things in the picture are non-living? Sort the living things into plants and animals. Count how many different types of plants you can see. Say how the plants are different from each other. Say how they are the same.
Activities 1 Name some living things and ask your partner to say if they are plants or animals. 2 Look at the list of living things that you found around your school last lesson. Label each thing plant or animal. Can you name some of the plants and animals? 3 Draw or write about one plant and one animal that you know. Describe each one. Say how they are the same and how they are different.

1.3 Plants can grow and move
• grow • move
Plants are living things. Plants need water and light to grow and be healthy. Non-living things do not need water or light. 1 Look at the picture. Where can you see some plants? 2 Are the plants in the pots living? Why do you think this?
3 Look at the pictures. Will the pink flower grow if you water it?
Activities 1 Describe how a plant changes as it grows. 2 Listen to a story about Elham and a bean plant. What happened? What does this tell you about the plant?
4 What do you think will happen if you do not water the purple plant?
3 Your teacher planted some seeds and some stones in separate pots. Predict what has happened. Look at the pots and draw a picture. Describe what happened and why.

When a plant grows it moves. Look at this picture of some young plants. They are growing and moving towards the light.
Plants need water and light to grow and be healthy. Plants grow and move towards the light. 7
1.4 Things that have never been alive
• non-living • alive • living
Some non-living things were once alive. These things come from plants and animals. Wood comes from trees. We use wood for many things. Trees are living but wood is non-living. When wood is cut from a tree it stops growing, so it is no longer alive. Some things have never been alive, such as water, stone, metal and plastic.
1 How many non-living things can you find in the picture? 2 Which non-living things were once alive? 3 Which non-living things have never been alive? 4 What does a tree do that a table made from wood does not do?
Activities 1 Look at some pictures in your Workbook (page 4). Circle the things that have never been alive.
2 Walk around your classroom. Find some non-living things that were once alive and some things that have never been alive. Make a list. 3 Make an odd-one-out poster of things that were once alive and things that have never been alive. Can your classmates guess the odd one out?
