Grow – Doesn’t Grow in Living with Non-Living – Class 6 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Living with Non-Living

Activity Name: Grow – Doesn’t Grow in Living with Non-Living

Activity Description:

In this experiment, we will analyze the growth patterns of living things. We will list down several living things that either grow for a certain period or grow throughout their life. Additionally, we will identify non-living things that do not grow and record our observations in a table.

Required Items:

  1. Pen and paper (or a digital device to record observations)

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Make a table with two columns labeled “Grows for certain period” and “Doesn’t grow.”
  2. In the column “Grows for certain period,” list down living things that you have observed growing for a specific duration. For example, you can include a hen as an example of a living thing that grows for a certain period.
  3. In the column “Grows throughout its life,” list down living things that you have observed growing continuously throughout their entire lifespan.
  4. In the column “Doesn’t grow,” list down non-living things that do not exhibit growth. For example, you can include a rock as an item that doesn’t grow.

Experiment Observations:

Grows for certain periodGrows throughout its life


  1. Take care while handling rocks to avoid injury.
  2. If conducting the experiment outdoors, ensure a safe environment with adult supervision.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

  1. Plants and animals possess many similar characteristics, such as the ability to grow and develop, respond to stimuli, and reproduce.
  2. The main difference between plants and animals lies in their mode of obtaining energy (photosynthesis for plants and ingestion for animals) and locomotion (animals can generally move independently while plants are stationary).
  3. Non-living objects, like rocks, do not possess any of the characteristics associated with living beings, as they lack cellular organization, growth, reproduction, and metabolism.

By comparing the characteristics of living beings and non-living objects, we can understand what distinguishes living organisms and appreciate their complexity and uniqueness.
