How does one define life? There are 5 different Characteristics that an organism must have to be considered living. 1. Lifespan

Individuals have a specific lifespan, grow old and eventually die.

Cat 12 years Dog 12 years Elephant 40 Human 78 Mouse 2 years Turtle 100 years Giraffe 10 years 2. Grow, Reproduce and Repair

Living things grow over their lifetimes. Individual Cells can only become so big. In order to grow, multicellular

organisms make more cells 2. Grow, Reproduce and Repair Individual organisms die, but the species continues because of reproduction.

Reproduction without genetic contribution from two parents is called asexual. Sexual reproduction produces offspring with

genetic material from both parents. 2. Grow, Reproduce and Repair Living things repair worn or injured parts 3. Respond to the Environment

Animals try to escape or confront predators Plants grow roots towards moist soil 4. Require Energy

Plants obtain energy from the sunlight Animals eat other organisms to obtain energy 5. Waste All organisms create and eliminate waste

as a result of carrying out life functions Waste includes solids, liquids and gases What are living things made of? Cell Theory 1) All living things are composed of one or more cells 2) The cell is the basic unit of life

3) All cells come from pre-existing cells 1) All living things are composed of one or more cells 2) The cell is the basic unit of life 3) All cells come fro m pre-existing cells

Characteristics of Living Things 1) Lifespan Individuals have a specific lifespan, grow old and eventually die. 2) Grow, Reproduce and Repair living things all grow in size, produce offspring and repair injuries 3) Respond to environment living things respond to environment ex. predators, moisture, sunlight 4) Require Energy obtain energy from other organisms or sunlight (plants)

5) Waste living things produce unwanted materials that they release to the environment Cell Theory 1) All living things are composed of one or more cells 2) The cell is the basic unit of life 3) All cells come from pre-existing cells To do now

On Pg. 30/31 of text 1) Fill in the cell diagram/descriptions 2) Read the two pages and answer the questions on the sheet
