11/5/1350th Day of School

Learning goal (7.L.1): I will be able to describe the characteristics of Euglena.

Due Today: Characteristics of Lifefoldable

Evening Assignment: Finish Euglena part of chart

do now
On the slip of paper, write the eight characteristics of life shared by all living things?Do Now


what characteristics do all living things share
All living things…
  • Are organized (cells, structures)
  • Reproduce (pass on genetic material)
  • Use energy
  • Grow& develop
  • Remove waste
  • Regulate Internal Conditions (homeostasis)
  • Respond to the environment
  • Evolve and Adapt
What characteristics do all living things share?

Characteristics of Life


life functions of single celled organisms
As you watch note what role each of the following plays in the life of unicellular organisms:
    • Nucleus
    • Flagella
    • Cilia
    • Pseudopod
    • Cytoplasm
    • Vacuole
    • Cell membrane
    • Mitochondria
    • Chloroplasts
Life Functions of single-celled Organisms

On the OUTSIDE flap use the red as headings
  • Organized
  • Reproduce
  • Use energy
  • Grow and develop
  • Remove waste
  • Regulate Internal Conditions
  • Respond to environment
  • Evolve and Adapt

On the INSIDE flaps

  • Explain the heading in your own words
  • Give an example of a specific organisms and that characteristic

Characteristics of Life Foldable

4 vocabulary flashcards
On the BACK

On the FRONT

Definition: A cell is the basic unit of life that is able to perform basic life functions.


Euglena: single-celled organism

Red blood cell: cell in human body that carries oxygen






4 Vocabulary Flashcards
Inside Flaps

Living things are organized into structures (cells, organelles, tissues, etc.) that perform life functions.


For example, humans are made up of many cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems that help us use energy, remove waste, respond to the environment, and reproduce.

Outside Flap

All life is



Characteristics of Life Foldable

Organization: Single-celled, flagellate algae with a red eye spot
  • Respond to Environment: Single flagella allows it to move toward food or away from predators
  • Energy Use: Autotroph- makes it’s own food like plants; Heterotroph- eats other organism
  • Evolve/Adapt: When water is scarce, forms a cyst
euglena feeding waste removal
Autotroph (makes it’s own food)
  • Sense light using red eyespot
  • Move toward light with flagella
  • Chloroplasts -> photosynthesis
  • Can also feed heterotrophically by engulfing food
  • Waste is removed by the vacuole
Euglena Feeding & Waste removal
euglena reproduction
Asexual reproduction only
  • Through binary fission
  • One organism splits into two genetically identical organisms
Euglena Reproduction
