This friend shared a glass turtle that she got in Maine. She told us it is nonliving because it does not need air, food or water. It also doesn't produce waste. Friends wanted to prove that it didn't move by itself- it didn't, she was right!
Mr. and Mrs. Jarvis shared their dog Trixie with us. She is definitely a living thing. We learned that Trixie is a therapy dog and keeps people company. Trixie did a trick where she laid on her back for a belly rub. She also gave her paw, switching paws really fast.
Thanks to everyone for a week of wonderful sharing. We definitely know what makes something living or nonliving now!
