  • Locomotion The movement of an organism towards food, water, shelter, mates. View slide
  • Synthesis Organisms build big things from little things They make large molecules that they need from smaller building blocks.
  • Transport Movement of stuff within the organism Like blood through our arteries and veins
  • Respiration Burning food for fuel sugar + oxygen ---> carbon dioxide + water + energy
  • Nutrition Living things obtain energy from their environment. Photosynthesis is key: Sunlight carbon dioxide + water -----------> sugar + oxygen + water
  • Growth More cells and bigger cells Humans start as 1 cell and grown and develop into an organism of about 50 trillion cells.
  • Excretion Getting rid of waste 4 types of excretion urination (peeps) defecation (poops) exhaling sweating
  • Reproduction Living things come from other living things. Living things make copies of themselves. Asexual reproduction - only 1 parent Sexual reproduction - two parents
