Worksheet Overview

All around us we are surrounded by both living, dead and non-living things. Humans, animals and plants are all living - they are alive. Objects like computers, plastic bottles and bricks are not alive and haven't ever been alive. Other things like, leaves on the ground or the bones of an animal are dead and once belonged to a living creature, for example a living tree or a living bird.

In this worksheet you must look at the each of the pictures and then decide if they show something that is alive, dead or never been alive.


Sample Question:

Is it alive, dead or never living?

 ANSWER: It has never been living because it is not a living creature.
