Living Things

All animals have particular needs to help with their survival.

During this presentation, the children will learn:

  • What is a living thing?
  • What does a living thing need to survive?
  • The importance of non-living things in their environment
  • What makes up a habitat?
  • How each animal survives in its habitat
  • Things we can do to assist with their survival


  • We can further explore each animals lifecycle (year 3)
  • Effect of seasonal and daily changes (year 1)
  • How change of conditions affects growth and survival of Living Things (year 6)


Utilising our different “Habitat Banners” provides a visual display of where each animal may be found and what they need both living and non-living to survive.

Animals the children will meet include:

  • Lizards
  • Python
  • Turtle or Frog
  • Saltwater Crocodile
  • Possum
  • Bird
