  • 1. What is an Organism?
    • An organism is a living thing
    • It is a collection of molecules that function as a whole
    • It has a barrier between itself and its environment
  • 2. The Cell
    • The basic unit of life is a cell
    • Cells are further broken into parts called organelles
    • Just as we have organs, cells have organelles
  • 3. Single-Celled Organisms
    • Some organisms only have one cell
    • Bacteria, that cause infections and certain diseases, are living things made of only one cell
  • 4. Plants and Animals
    • Organisms we are most familiar with have many cells
    • Our bodies have around 10 trillion cells
    • Plant cells and animal cells have many similarities and several differences
  • 5. Animal Cells
    • The center or “brain” of the cell is called the nucleus
    • Ribosomes take information from the cell’s nucleus and use it to create molecules for building new organelles or new cells
    • Mitochondria “power” the cell
  • 6. Plant Cells
    • Plant Cells are similar to animal cells except for a few differences
    • Plant cells have a cell wall to maintain shape
    • Plant cells have chloroplasts to absorb sunlight
  • 7. What are the…
    • Their cells are similar but what are some differences between plants and animals?
    • Can you name a few already?
  • 8. Differences Between Plants and Animals
    • Plants have roots
    • Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen
    • Plants do not move (from place to place)
    • Plants absorb sunlight for energy
    • Animals must eat and drink
    • Animals breathe in oxygen and release carbon dioxide
    • Animals do move
    • Most of animals’ energy comes from food and water
