  • Able to increase in size to get bigger
  • and change over time
  • Example bigger muscles

  • DNA is passed into reproduction called Heredity
  • Able to adapt to changes through generations

Six Characteristics of Living Things
  1. Cells
  2. Growth and development
  3. Reproduction
  4. Energy
  5. Response
  6. DNA
