6Why is R.O.G.E.R.S. a living thing? Living things respond……
7Respond/React to Changes Organisms react to change in their surroundings.Any reaction to change is called a response.For example: A bright light may cause you to blink.
8Why is R.O.G.E.R.S. a living thing? Living things are organized………….
9Organized from smallest made of Cells Organisms are made up of one or more cells.A cell is the basic unit of structure and function in living things.Cells = theof life.“Building Blocks"
10Cells are organized into tissues Tissues are organized into organsOrgans are organized into organ systemsOrgan systems are organized into organisms
11Why is R.O.G.E.R.S. a living thing? Living things grow and develop…….
12Grow and DevelopLiving things change, or develop, during their lifetimes.One way organisms change is by growing.Cell division - the orderly formation of new cells.Cell enlargement - the increase in size of a cell. Cells grow to a certain size and then divide.An organism gets larger as the number of its cells increases.Living things may also changein appearance.For example: tadpoles and frogs
13Why is R.O.G.E.R.S. a living thing? Living things take in and use energy……
14Use and Need EnergySunlight is the source of energy for most living things.Plants use the energy in sunlight to make foodAnimals get energy by eating plants or other animals that have eaten plants.Bacteria and fungi get energy from decaying plant or animal matterAll organisms need and use energy to live.Energy is the ability to dowork.
15Why is R.O.G.E.R.S. a living thing? Living things reproduce……….
16ReproduceReproduction is not essential for the survival of individual organisms, but must occur for a species to survive.All living things reproduce in one of the following ways:Asexual reproduction - Producing offspring without the use of gametes, sex cells.Sexual reproduction - Producing offspring by the joining of sex cells.
17Why is R.O.G.E.R.S. a living thing? Living things have Similar chemicals…….Most common elementsin living things are carbon,hydrogen, nitrogen, andoxygen. These fourelements constitute about95% of your body weight.
18Adapted to Their Surroundings Organisms are adapted, or suited, to their surroundings.All organisms have features that help them survive in their surroundings.For example: fish have gills
19Other characteristics MovementInternal movement of organelles and fluidsExternal movement- up or downLocomotionMaintain HomeostasisRelatively constant internal environment, pH, temp, salinity (like humans body temperature stays right around 98.6)
20What do living things need? A place to liveSoil, water, air,gassesSpaceRaw materialsFood, water, minerals
