(NB: Sample AUDIO & SLIDES in Preview at the top of this page)


Living things are sometimes large,

Sometimes very small;

Moving ’round on two legs,

Four, six, eight or more!

Some have tails or fins or wings,

For land or sea or air;

Some stay in the same spot,

And don’t go anywhere.


Living things can grow and change,

Walk, run, swim and fly.

Non-living things do nothing at all,

Because they’re not alive.
