Living things v. Nonliving things - Kyrene School District

Organisms Living things use energy, move, consume water and food, etc. Any individual form of life that is capable of growing and reproducing is considered an organism. All organisms get water and other materials from the environment. Identify the organisms: Rock People

Hamburger Tree Table Computer Fish ZebraBird Characteristics of Life All living things have six characteristics of life. Its body must be made up of cells. It must have the ability to develop and grow. It must be able to respond to its environment. It must have the ability to reproduce. It must be able to use energy. It must be able to metabolize things or excrete waste.

Needs of Life Organisms cannot carry out the activities of life without some necessities. They are: Food and Water Fats and Proteins Air Temperature Space Cells

All living things are made of cells. Cells are the smallest unit of a living thing. Unicellular organisms are made of a single cell. An example would be a tiny organism in pond water. Multicellular organisms are made of many cells. An example would be frogs.

Cell Discovery! Most cells are so small that they cannot be seen without a microscope. In the 1660s Robert Hooke began using microscopes to look at various material. He gave cells its name after looking at cork under a microscope. In the 1670s Anton van Leeuwenhoek began looking at cells too. He was the first person to

describe living cells. Using microscopes helped the scientist discover the living things in items such as pond water. This made people ask the question: Do all living things have cells? Cell theory: Another question that many people had was where do cells come from? As Scientists began to investigate this question, they developed what is known as the cell theory.

The cell theory one of the basic concepts of biology. It states: All living things are made up of one or more cells. Cells carry out the functions needed to support life. Cells come from other living cells. Louis Pasteur A French scientists that lived during the 1800s There was no mechanical refrigeration in

homes, which caused foods like milk to spoil. Many people during this time died from typhoid fever, tuberculosis, and diphtheria. Pasteur found that microscopic organisms (bacteria) were involved in spoiling food and in diseases. Pasteur discovered a process called pasteurization, which uses heat to kill bacteria. Doing this helps things like milk last longer. Bacteria and Spontaneous Generation

Many scientist believed that bacteria grew from nonliving material in what is called spontaneous generation. Pasteur thought otherwise and conducted a series of experiments that confirmed the cell theory. He found that bacteria are present in the air. In his experiments, there were two flasks of broth. One was open, and the other was sealed. Bacteria began growing in the flask that was open, but not the one that was sealed. The sealed one remained clear. Knowing this, what do you think would happen to a sealed flask of broth after a week has passed?

The Diverse Cell Cells have a great variety of size and shape. The cell membrane is a boundary that separates the inside of the cell from the outside of the cell. The cell membrane is that protective outer covering that encloses the entire cell. It controls what enters and leaves the cell. Cytoplasm is a gelatin-like material inside of the cell membrane. Cells can be divided into two categories: eukaryote and prokaryote. A eukaryotic cell holds its genetic material inside of the nucleus of the cell. A prokaryotic cell does not have a nucleus, so its genetic material is in the cytoplasm. Eukaryotic Cell Both plants and animals have eukaryotic cells.

Plant and animal cells have a cell membrane and cytoplasm. Plant cells contain a cell wall. The cell wall is a tough outer covering that lies outside the cell membrane. The cell wall supports and protects the cell. There are many organelles that can be found within both the plant and animal cells. An organelle is any part of a cell that is surrounded by a membrane. Each organelles activities are separate from those of other organelles. Organisms If you look around you, there are many living organisms that you can see. There is also a

huge number of unicellular organisms. Most of the organisms alive on Earth today are unicellular or made of a single cell. Examples of one-celled organisms can be found in the domains of Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya. A domain is a broad category of living things based on the characteristics of the cell.

Archaea and Bacteria They are prokaryotes and both have tough cell walls. The cytoplasm contains ribosomes, but no organelles. There is no nucleus for organisms in this category. Archaea was first discovered in the 1970s, but bacteria was discovered prior to this time. Eukarya Organisms have cells with a nucleus. Includes all of the multicellular organisms on Earth such as plants, animals, and fungi. It also includes many unicellular

organisms like protists. The paramecium is one of the most complex of the unicellular eukaryotes. It has all it needs to live as a single cell. Multicellular Organisms

Most multicellular organisms are made of different types of cells that do different jobs. The cells are all specialized. Specialization is when a cell and all of its organelles are organized in a way that allows it to do a specific job. An example of specialized cell is a muscle cell or root cells. A nonexample is a paramecium. Cells in more complex organisms like plants and animals are grouped together in tissues. A tissue is a group of similar cells that are organized to do a specific job. An example would be the two layers of skin tissue that humans have. Multicellular Organisms Different tissues working together to perform a particular function represents an organism. This is an organ. An example would be something

like the lungs. Organs and tissues working together forms what is known as an organ system. An example would be the nervous system. Organism is the highest level of organization. An example would be a frog. Cell Models Scientists use models to provide insight into cells. Models show how cell parts fit together. Scientific models can be a simple equation or a formula. It can also be three dimensional in order to show the scientists what it would look like. The real cells often look very different from the models that are created of the cell.
