  1. Kingdom Protista Coach Hamilton Hazelwood East Middle School

  2. If you look at a drop of pond water under a microscope, all the "little creatures" you see swimming around are Protists.

  3. Protists!!!!! • Prostista means “The Very First” • Mostly unicellular, some are multi-cellular (algae) • Can be heterotrophic or autotrophic • Most live in water (though some live in moist soil or even the human body) • ALL are Eukaryotic (have a nucleus)

  4. Yummy in my Tummy! Heterotrophs Autotrophs • Must obtain food from surroundings • Amoeba • Paramecium • Have chloroplasts & can make own food • Euglena • Volvox

  5. I Like to Move It, Move It! • Amoeboids • Ciliates • Flagellates • Volvox

  6. Amoeboids • Moves by extending cytoplasm outward to form pseudopodia & then pulls rest of the cell behind it

  7. Ciliates • Hair-like structures that cover the exterior of the cell, which move back & forth to propel the microorganism

  8. Flagellates • Moves by twisting one or more large hairs called flagella

  9. Volvox • Spherical colony of cells with 2 flagella each, which beat to move the colony.
