    Living things Living things Presentation Transcript

    • Living Things by Ms. Lysandrou
    • Vocabulary
    • All things on earth are one of the following:
      • Living
      • Non-living
      • Dead
      • Have potential for life
    • Living Things
        • have cells
        • react to stimuli
        • eat, need air, and use nutrients
        • grow and change
        • can make more of themselves.
          • Apple trees make more apple trees
          • People make more people.
    • Cells
      • All living things are divided into pieces called cells.
      • Most cells are so small, you need a microscope to see them!
      • Cells have all the information living things need to grow and change.
    • Cells There are many kinds of cells that do different things. There are plant cells and animal cells. Click the picture for a short video showing all kinds of cells moving around inside your body!
    • Nutrients
      • Animals get nutrients from the foods they eat.
      • Nutrients are the vitamins and other good stuff that living things need to grow and stay healthy.
      • Plants get nutrients from soil.
    • Stimuli
      • The plant reacts to the sun, water and air.
      • How do you know the plant reacts to these stimuli?
    • Environment
      • The environment is the place where something or someone is.
      • Right now, your environment is school.
      • Later, your environment will be home, soccer practice, or maybe the store.
    • A tree’s environment is the forest.
      • In what environment would you find a fish?
      • Where would you find a book?
    • Non-living Things
        • Things that do not:
        • have cells
        • react to stimuli
        • eat, need air, nor use nutrients
        • grow and change
        • make more of themselves
      • are non-living .
    • Dead
      • These are things that were once alive, but are not anymore.
      • They do not take in nutrients, or grow and change anymore.
      • Some examples are wood and paper.
    • Potential For Life
      • Some things COULD be alive if the conditions were right.
      • One example is a seed. The seed itself is not living UNTIL it is in soil with water and sun. THEN it becomes a living thing that grows and changes, takes in nutrients and responds to changes in it’s environment.
