What are living things?

Living things move, respond to stimuli, reproduce and grow, respire, and are dependent on their environment. Most living things need food, water, light, temperatures within defined limits, and oxygen. Non-living things are all the things that are not classified as living things.

Basic needs of living things

In order to survive, animals need air, water, food, and shelter (protection from predators and the environment); plants need air, water, nutrients, and light. Every organism has its own way of making sure its basic needs are met.
