Warm Up What is biology?
What is it? What is Biology?
Is the study of living thingsAll living things are called organisms
Characteristics of LifeLiving things are very organized and contain many complex chemical substances
Living things are made up of one or more cellsMulticellular- more than 1 cell Unicellular- 1 cell
Living things have a definite form and limited size
Living things have a limited life spanGastrotrich (a minute aquatic animal) 3 day life span Giant tortoise 177 year life span
Living things evolve or change over long periods of timeLiving things evolve or change over long periods of time. This is characteristic of groups of organisms, not of individuals.
Life Processes- determine living v. non-living1. Living things move.
2. Living things are able to reproduce.
3. Living things are sensitive and respond to changes in the environment.Does one rotten apple spoil the whole bunch? Ethylene
4. Living things need nutritionMake their food
5. Excrete waste. Examples: Sweat, urine, carbon dioxide
6. Living things respire (plants and animals use the oxygen in the air to turn food into energy)
7. Living things grow and develop.
Use the first letter from each process to help you remember them.Move Reproduce Sensitive Nutrition Excrete Respire Grow They spell MRS. NERG
This is MRS NERG ! Can you remember what each of the letters in her name stands for ?
Is it alive? Virus
Characteristics of life Characteristics of lifeLooking at living things.
LIFE PROCESSES LIFE PROCESSESLooking at living things.
What is Biology? BIOLOGY the study of living things.
AIM: WHAT CHARACTERISTICS DO ALL LIVING THINGS SHARE? AIM: WHAT CHARACTERISTICS DO ALL LIVING THINGS SHARE? Looking at living things… Do Now: On your paper.
Hello I am Mrs. Nerg and I will help you to remember the seven life processes. Although my name sounds a bit strange, the letters in it stand for the.
ORGANISM Any living thing. 7 Characteristics of Living Things.
Good Afternoon! Do Now: Take out graphing homework. Copy down the following vocabulary words. Your homework this week is to define these words. DUE.
MRS. C. GREN Characteristics of Life 7 th grade science Malnory/Pietsch
6 Characteristics of Living Things 1. Made Of Cells A. Basic Building Blocks of Life B. Cells come from other Living Things C. Unicellular or Multicellular.
Living things Where plants and animals align. What’s alive We are surrounded by living and non- living things. All animals and plants are living things.
What it means to be alive. All living things have cellular organization. Think of cells as puzzle pieces that make up all living things This means.
BIOLOGY What is biology? Biology is the study of life. What is an organism? Each individual living thing. Example: Bacteria, Paramecium, Cat, Rose etc.
An unmanned space probe was sent to Mars to check for signs of life on the planet. How could such a probe confirm the existence of life?
There are seven important characteristics common to all living things. Use the mnemonic ‘Mrs Gren’ to remember these characteristics: There are seven important.
Respiration. To stay alive, cells need: 1.Food 2.Energy 3.To get rid of waste 4.To reproduce.
Life. Content Standard LS1A Know cells are the basic unit of life Describe life functions performed by cells and living organisms.
Characteristics of Life 8 Life Functions. What is Biology? Biology is the study of all living things Living things are called organisms Organisms include.
Unit 2: Similarities Among Living Things Understanding life, life functions, and cells.
Living and Nonliving Things Tressy Crutchfield. Teacher Information Content Area: Science Grade Level: 3 Summary: The purpose of this PowerPoint is for.
What is Biology? What makes a Living Thing? 1)Nutrition – Obtaining food to it can have energy and the substances need to grow and repair itself – Examples?
Objective: *Turn in Pen Pal Letter HW= None. Characteristics of Living Things: What do all living organisms have in common?
Living Things Characteristics of Life. What do you already know about living things? What does it mean to be “living”? What must living things have/be.
Cellular Respiration Unit 3. Cell Growth Review 1.Cells grow and divide by mitosis and meiosis (more cells made). In order to grow and do work, cells.
Characteristics of Life. Movement All Living things move.
Living Things Biology is the study of life or living things Another name for a living thing is an Organism.
