8 500 The tendency to maintain a stable environment within the cell. What is Homeostasis Continue

9 600 Encloses the cell and controls what enters and exits the cell. What is Plasma or cell membrane Continue

10 700 The process by which some molecules are allowed to enter a cell while others are not. Continue What is Selective permeability

11 800 Jelly-like substance that surround the organelles within the cell. What is Cytoplasm Continue

12 900 Transports and stores substances throughout the cell. What is Endoplasmic Reticulum Continue

13 1000 Builds (synthesizes) proteins molecules. What is a Ribosome Continue

14 100 The branch of biology that names and groups organisms according to their characteristics. What is a Taxonomy Continue

15 200 The taxonomic group which contains similar classes. What is a Phylum Continue

16 300 The taxonomic group which contains similar orders with common characteristics. What is a Class Continue

17 400 A group of organisms that are closely related and can mate to produce fertile offspring; the most specific taxonomic group. What is Species Continue

18 500 A form of asexual reproduction in which a part of the parent organism pinches off and forms a new organism. What is Budding Continue

19 600 Hair-like projections that are used for locomotion in protist...Paramecium What is Cilia Continue

20 700 False-feet that is used for locomotion in protists. What is Pseudopod Continue

21 800 A whip-like projection that is used for locomotion… Euglena/sperm. What is a Flagellum Continue

22 900 Specialized plant tissue that is used for transporting water and minerals throughout that plant. What is Vascular Tissue Continue

23 1000 Animals that have a backbone with a central nervous chord. What are Vertebrates Continue

24 100 One of two or more different genes that occupy the same place on a chromosome– allowing genetic variation. What is an Allele Continue

25 200 Deoxyribonucleic acid; the molecule that stores and passes on genetic information– is located in the nucleus of a cell. What is DNA Continue

26 300 A trait that prevents (or masks) a recessive trait when present. What a Dominant Trait Continue

27 400 The basic unit of heredity, which is passed down from parent to offspring and is transcribed on a protein chain. What a Gene Continue

28 500 The genetic makeup of an organism (ex: TT, Tt, tt). What is a Genotype Continue

29 600 The passing down of traits from parents to offspring. What is Heredity Continue

30 700 Possessing two different alleles of a given gene (ex: Tt). What is Heterozygous Continue

31 800 Possessing two of the same alleles of a given gene (ex: TT or tt). What is Homozygous Continue

32 900 Change in the DNA base sequence which alters the outcome of the offspring. What is a Mutation Continue

33 1000 Building blocks of Nucleic acids; consists of a sugar base, a phosphate group and a nitrogen base (Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine or Guanine). What are Nucleotide Continue

34 100 Groups of cells that work together in your body to perform a particular function. What is Tissue Continue

35 200 Two or more types of tissues working together to perform a certain functions. What are Organs Continue

36 300 A group of organs that work together to carry out major activities or processes (ex: digestion, respiration, excretion). What is a Organ system Continue

37 400 Tissues that lines most of the body surfaces and protects from dehydration and physical damage. What is Epithelial tissue Continue

38 500 Consists of nerve cells that carry information (impulses) throughout the body. What is Nervous tissue Continue

39 600 Supports, protects and insulates the body (fat, bone, blood, cartilage, tendons). What is Connective tissue Continue

40 700 Contracts to enable body structures to move (Types: Smooth, cardiac, and skeletal). What is Muscle tissue Continue

41 800 System which protects the body from injury, provides a defense against pathogens, helps regulate body temperature and prevents the body from drying out. This system includes the skin (largest organ in the body), hair and nails. What is Integumentary Continue

42 900 The outermost layer of skin which is composed of flat, dead epithelial cells. What is the Epidermis Continue

43 1000 Protein found in the epidermis that makes skin tough and waterproof. What is Keratin Continue

44 100 Blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart. What are Arteries Continue

45 200 A tiny blood vessel that connects arteries to veins and is where exchange of materials such as gases, nutrients and hormones between the blood and body cells takes place. What are Capillaries Continue

46 300 Blood vessels that carry blood to the heart. What are Veins Continue

47 400 A straw-colored component of blood (60%) that is mostly water and acts as a solvent to dissolve materials such as waste products, salts, glucose, food molecules, vitamins, hormones and proteins that are carried by the blood to all parts of the body. What is Plasma Continue

48 500 Also called erythrocytes; are the most numerous cells in the human body. These are produced in the bone marrow and have no nucleus. Their main function is to carry oxygen throughout the body. What are Red Blood Cells Continue

49 600 An iron containing protein that picks up oxygen in the lungs and transports it to the tissues of the body via red blood cells. This also gives red blood cells their color. What is Hemoglobin Continue

50 700 A.K.A. Leukocytes. Main function is to defend the body against disease. These cells are larger than red blood cells and each has a nucleus. There are not as many as these as red blood cells. What are White Blood Cells Continue

51 800 Disease causing agent. What is a Pathogen Continue

52 900 Another component of blood whose main function is to stop the blood flow when the body has a wound. What are Platelets Continue

53 1000 Organ of the circulatory system which is responsible for pumping blood throughout the body. It has 4 chambers and is made of cardiac muscle tissue. What is the Heart Continue
