Characteristics of living things:
Characteristics of non-living things:
Living things can move on their own like horse gallops, birds fly, monkeys jump on trees etc. Plants do not move from one place to another but they grow in the direction of sunlight. Thus they make movement in the direction of light. Parts of plants like creepers and climbers move towards support. Roots of plants like cactus grow deep in search of water.
Imp concept: There is a misconception that plants breathe through leaves only. In fact, plants breathe through all parts. Roots breathe air present in soil through thin hairs present on root.
