7 characteristic of living things1. Nutritione.g. Human- Primary food substances (carbohydrates, fats, proteins) Protective food substances (vitamin, mineral, dietary fiber)Plants- Photosynthesis (water + carbon dioxide +sunlight + chlorophyll = glucose + oxygen)2. Movementse.g. Human- Bones, muscles, jointsetcPlants- Sunflower, mimosa3. Respiration - the process by which food is oxidized to give out energy for growth, self- repair, movements, keep warm etc. This process occurs in mitochondria in every living cell. (glucose + oxygen = carbon dioxide + water)4. Growthe.g. Human- growth in weight and height (stop growing at a point) Plants- continuous growth in height5. Excretion- to remove metabolic wastes (toxic if kept in the bodye.g. sweat, egestion, urination, carbon dioxide etc6. Sensitivitye.g. Human- 5 senses reaction to stimuli (stimulus) Plants- mimosa fold inward its leave when touched7. Reproduction- produce new similar organismse.g. Human and plants- sexual reproduction (2 parents) Bacteria- asexual reproduction (1 parent)*metabolism- all chemical reactions in a living organismVariety of lifeBiological ClassificationCharacteristics of different kingdomsFungus / Fungi -Most are multicellular, but some are single-cell -with cell wall -extracellular digestion (feed on dead organisms) e.g. yeast, bread mold (produce enzymes)Protoctists -unicellular -can be pathogenic (can cause diseases) e.g.
