metal spoon A glass Woollen socks
A metal spoon A glass Woollen socks


We know that all of these things belong to the NON-LIVING group - that's the easy part!

The metal spoon and the glass are made of materials which have NEVER LIVED.

The socks are made from a material which was once part of a living animal. Wool grows on sheep and we can use wool to make lots of useful objects. 



We use wool because it is soft and warm.
