When my daughter was about 5 years old, I was teaching her the difference between living things and non-living things.To drive home the point better, I told her:
“Livings things grow and become bigger.”
I quoted some examples, like a chick becomes a hen, a tiny calf becomes a cow and a baby grows into an adult.
I added: “Non-living things do not change their size ever”
My clever daughter’s very intelligent question astounded me .
“Mummy, is a pencil a living or non-living thing? A pencil becomes smaller than it’s original size when we use it.”
