    Hello Intergalactic Galaxy!

    Thank you for asking us your question!

    A living thing is something that has once reproduced, eaten or breathed. For example, a bacteria, a plant and an animal are all living things.

    A non-living thing is something that can't breathe, eat or reproduce itself. Rocks, water and air are non-living things.

    Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions!
