TOPIC: LIVING AND NON LIVING THING (IV)
CLASSIFICATION OF NON – LIVING THING
Non – living things can be divided into two groups
1. Those that are never part of a living things e.g. stone, gold, silver, diamonds, metal.
2. Those that are part of living things e.g. coal, paper, jam, palm oil etc.
PROPERTIES OF METALS
1. They are shiny .
2. They can be hammered into a sheet.
3. They can be drawn into a wire.
4. They are good conductor of heat.
5. They are good conductor of electricity.
6. They make a sound when hit.
Example of metals are copper, iron, steel, tin, aluminum
USES OF METALS
1. Iron is used in making cars, ships, Lorries, ovens, generator, poles, corrugated iron sheet.
2. Steel is used in making electric fans, steel roofing, pillars, refrigerators etc
3. Copper is used in making electric wire.
4. Aluminum is used in making electric wire and cooking pots.
5. Steel can also be used in making household utensils.
6. Lead is used in making car and Lorries batteries.
7. Zinc is used in making torch batteries covering iron sheet to prevent rusting.
- State five examples of non-living things.
- Mention three properties of metals.
1. They are not shiny.
2. They cannot be hammered into a sheet because they are brittle.
3. They cannot be drawn into a wire.
4. Bad conductor of electricity.
5. Bad conductor of heat.
6. They do not make sound when hit.
USES OF NON – METALS
1. Carbon is used in torch batteries.
2. Sulphur is used in medicines.
3. Oxygen is used for respiration and burring.
4. Nitrogen is a component of protein.
5. Chlorine is used in treatment of water.
6. Glass is used in making doors and windows.
