What will happen in Living with Non-Living – Class 6 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Living with Non-Living

Activity Name: What will happen in Living with Non-Living

Activity Description:

In this activity, we will discuss and analyze how living beings respond to different stimuli. We will explore the responses of animals and plants to various stimuli and compare them to our own responses.

Required Items:

  1. Pen/pencil
  2. Paper or notebook

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Gather with your friend or group to discuss the responses of living beings to stimuli.
  2. Begin by discussing the first question: “Do other animals also respond to stimuli like us?” a. Share your thoughts and opinions on whether animals respond to stimuli similarly to humans. b. Consider examples of animal behaviors, such as animals moving away from danger, responding to sounds, or seeking food. c. Discuss the similarities and differences between animal responses and human responses.
  3. Move on to the second question: “Do plants respond to stimuli like animals?” a. Express your thoughts and knowledge on whether plants can respond to stimuli. b. Consider examples of plant responses, such as growing towards light (phototropism) or closing leaves when touched (thigmotropism). c. Discuss the mechanisms behind these plant responses and compare them to animal responses.

Experiment Observations:

During the discussion, you can make note of the different viewpoints and examples provided by your friend or group members. Take note of any interesting observations or insights that arise during the discussion.


There are no specific precautions for this activity as it involves a discussion and analysis of concepts rather than a hands-on experiment. However, ensure that the discussion remains respectful and inclusive of different perspectives.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

Through this activity, you will learn that living beings, including animals and plants, possess the characteristic feature of responding to stimuli.

While animals and humans may share more similarities in their responses, plants also exhibit various responses to different stimuli. Understanding these responses can help us appreciate the complexity and diversity of life on Earth.
