Living things and Non-living things are subjects that one has to master. The basic of all sciences relies on the student learning to differentiate between the two. There are things that are obvious to tell apart, however things that are living but are hardly moving may get confusing at times.

Living things

Living things are things that are alive, as the word implies. Alive could mean a couple of things: breathing, growing, moving and reproducing. However not all characteristics would automatically determine if the object is living or not. Examples of living things are: animals, plants, insects, bacteria and of course, humans. All types of living things needs energy to keep on existing, this is done through several means or methods.

Non-living things

In the meantime non-living things are the exact opposite of living things. They do not exhibit any growth and they do not have a life of its own. They do not eat, sleep, reproduce, and respond to any forms of stimuli. There are non-living things however that can grow in size. An example would be icicles formed from rain and snow. They grow in size however they are not living.

Difference between Living and Non-living Things

Living things exhibit life while non-living things does not. Living things grow, produce and move; non-living things do not. Living things needs energy and can even produce their own energy just like the plants, while non-living things do not need energy since they do not grow. Living things move, even plants have movement even if it is limited. Non-living things on the other hand does not move unless influenced by another source. If living things can grow, they most absolutely have the capacity to die; non-living things do not die because they are not alive to begin with.

It may be an easy subject to tackle however once you delve into the specifics of each subject, you will soon realize that there are characteristics that makes distinguishing between the two very difficult.
