    Respire - All living things need oxygen to stay alive. They use oxygen to turn food into energy ,to obtain oxygen from the air, animals and plants exchange gases between themselves and their surroundings. Need Nutrition - All living things need some sort of nutrition to keep their cells in their systems working. Movement - All living things move, movement is a key element of survival for all living things however plants do not move their position; plants move their roots towards water and towards the centre of the earth.They move their stems amd leaves towards light. Grow - All living this grow as they age, increasing their size Are Sensitive - They are sensitive to changes in their surroundings and react to them. Excrete - All living things get rid of harmful or waste products in their systems in one way or another. Reproduce - All living things have the ability to make offspring and which will continue into another generation but to be able to reproduce the animals or plants have to be mature. Hope that helps :)
