Living things are known as organisms and include humans, plants, animals, and sometimes smaller things that are harder to see like bacteria. All living things carry out seven functions that make them alive. The first one is movement, and we can see that humans and animals can move but plants also move too with water and nutrients flowing up and down the plant. The second one is respiration which is the release of energy. The third function is sensitivity responding to the world around them. The fourth function is getting nutrients from food or if you're a plant, creating your own. The fifth function of all living things is excretion or getting rid of waste. The sixth one is reproduction or creating offspring. The seventh and final function that all living things do is grow. A fish, for example, is a living thing because it can carry out all these seven functions by itself. A toothbrush is not a living thing. We may help it move by brushing our teeth, but it cannot do it by itself.
Kids earn more screen time by answering fun educational questions.
