what characteristics do all living things share
What Characteristics do all Living Things Share?
  • All living things have a cellular organization.

A cellis the basic unit of life.

Unicellular- one celled

Multicellular- more than one cell

2. Cells are composed of chemicals.

Water- the most abundant

Carbohydrates- for energy

Proteins and lipids- building materials

Nucleic Acids- contain genetic material

3. Living things react to stimuli.

A stimulus is something in the environment that causes a reaction, or a response.

A response is an action or change in behavior.

4. Living things grow and develop.

Growth- an increase in the size of an organism.

Development- a progressive change in an organism over time.

5. All living things have the ability to reproduce.

All living things arise from other living things.

The theory of SpontaneousGeneration, which proposed that life can appearspontaneously from non-living things, was disproved by experiments performed by Redi and Pasteur.

life comes from life
Life Comes from Life
  • Living things come from living things.
  • 400 years ago people though that living things came from non-living things (SpontaneousGeneration).
  • Francisco Redi, Louis Pasteur did experiments to disprove this theory.
6. All living things use energy.

Energy is used to nourish, repair and create new cells.

We obtain energy from converting the foods that we eat into energy that can be used by the cells.

7. All living things can move.

This process is called Locomotion.

Plants move their branches and leaves toward the Sun!

All living things will die.

One of the realities of life is that all life eventually comes to an end. This process is called Expiration.

what do all living things need to survive
What do All Living Things Need to Survive?
  • Water****
  • Food
  • Living space
  • Stable internal conditions (Homeostasis)
how do organisms obtain food for energy
How do Organisms Obtain Food for Energy?
  • Autotrophs- make their own food (Plants).
  • Heterotrophs- obtain food from other sources.
    • Herbivore- eat plants.
    • Carnivore- eat animals (meat).
    • Omnivore- eat plants and animals.
