First Things First Suns Energy –Light –Heat Water Minerals
Plants: How do they grow? Plants manufacture and store Starch using Suns energy Plants use starch –Breakdown into its component sugars –Releases energy for growth
Herbivores: How do they grow? Animals eat plants –Starch is too large to be absorbed directly –Breakdown starch using enzymes released in the Digestive System –Releases energy for growth
Carnivores: How do they grow? Animals eat animals –Prey digested broken down into smaller particles (Proteins) –Proteins broken down into Amino Acids –Absorbed into bloodstream distribute to all parts of the body –Amino Acids realign proteins to be used by bodys cells –Same parts are found in different order
