  • 1. Living Things by Ms. Lysandrou
  • 2. Vocabulary
  • 3. All things on earth are one of the following:
    • Living
    • Non-living
    • Dead
    • Have potential for life
  • 4. 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.
  • 5. 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.
  • 6. 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!
  • 7. 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.
  • 8. Stimuli
  • 9.  
  • 10.
    • The plant reacts to the sun, water and air.
    • How do you know the plant reacts to these stimuli?
  • 11.  
  • 12. 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.
  • 13. A tree’s environment is the forest.
  • 14.
    • In what environment would you find a fish?
    • Where would you find a book?
  • 15. 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 .
  • 16. 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.
  • 17. 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.
