1
The Characteristics ofLiving Things
  • Biologists use six characteristics to classify
    something as a living thing.
  • 1. Made of Cells
  • 2. Adapted to Their Environment
  • 3. Use and Need Energy
  • 4. Reproduce
  • 5. Growth and Develop
  • 6. Produce waste

2
The Characteristics ofLiving Things
  • All living things have these six characteristics.
  • Anything without one of these six characteristics
    is nonliving.
  • Living things are called organisms.

1. Made of Cells
  • Organisms are made up of one or more cells.
  • A cell is the basic unit of structure and
    function in living things.
  • Cells the

Building Blocks"
of life.

2. Adapted to Their Environment
  • Organisms are adapted, or suited, to their
    surroundings.
  • All organisms have features that help them
    survive in their surroundings.
  • For example fish have gills, plants moving to
    light source

  • Fish out of water

3. Use and Need Energy
  • All organisms need and use energy to live.
  • Energy is the ability to do work.
  • Sunlight is the source of energy for most living
    things.
  • Plants use the energy in sunlight to make food,
    and animals get energy by eating plants or other
    animals that have eaten plants. 8H

4. Reproduce
  • Organisms produce more organisms of their own
    kind.

  • One way organisms change is by growing.
  • Living things may also change in appearance.
  • For example tadpoles and frogs
  • All organisms grow and develop.

  • Get rid of waste C02, urine, feces, oxygen.

Summary
  • Biologists use six characteristics to classify
    something as a living thing.
  • 1. Made of Cells
  • 2. Use and Need Energy
  • 3. Adapted to Their Environment
  • 4. Reproduce
  • 5. Growth and Develop
  • 6. Produce waste
  • All living things display all of the above
    characteristics.
