- Animals move from one place to another in search of food.
- They show other body movements as well.
- Plants do not move as they are fixed to the soil but substances like food ,water and other minerals made by them move from one plant to another
- Some non - living things also move like a bus, car, small piece of paper but not on their own.
Non living things also show some of these characteristics but not all.
Therefore, anything which is living should show all these characteristics which are mentioned above.
Eg. The vehicles, although non living, have the capability to move.
