Explore and compare the differences between things that are living, dead, and things that have never been alive.

Information for parents

All objects are either living, dead or have never been alive. Living things are plants (including seeds) and animals. Dead things include dead animals and plants and parts of plants and animals that are no longer attached e.g. leaves and twigs, shells, fur, hair and feathers (This is a simplification, but appropriate for Year 2 children.)

An object made of wood is classed as dead. Objects made of rock, metal and plastic have never been alive (again ignoring that plastics are made of fossil fuels).

Activity

Explore the outside environment to find objects that are living, dead and have never lived. Take a photo of the objects you find for each heading, living, dead or have never been alive.
