Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the children’s thoughts and opinions about what is living and non - living. Whether they believe that animals and plants are living, and about the beliefs that children have about things that are non-living and living. There were four six year old children who were included in the study and the methodology used in this study was a semi -structured interview. I used twelve pictures of different living things and non - living things. I showed the pictures to the children and posed various questions that resulted in different responses and reactions from the children. The results from this method was the children's general views on what was living and non - living. With the grounds that if something can move, it's alive.
