Describe organisms in plant kingdom multi-celled organisms that make their own food through photosynthesis
Describe organisms in protists kingdom one or multi-celled organisms with a nucleus
Describe organisms in fungus kingdom one or multi-celled organisms that reproduce by spores
Describe organisms in bacteria kingdom one-celled organisms without a nucleus
Give examples of organisms that are in the animal kingdom frogs, bees, humans, etc.
Give examples of organisms that are in the plant kingdom trees, grass, weeds, flowers, bushes, shrubs, etc.
Give examples of organisms that are in the protists kingdom algae, diatoms, paramecium, amoeba
Give examples of organisms that are in the bacteria kingdom Archaebacteria: live at hydrothermal vents Eubacteria: E. coli, salmonella, streptococcus
Give examples of organisms that are in the fungus kingdom mushrooms, mold, yeast, bracket fungus
5 features to know if something is alive: if it has cells, if it uses energy, if it grows, if it responds, if it reproduces
A cell is: the basic building blocks of life
An organism is: Any one single living thing
Examples of living things: fungus, bacteria, plants, animals, viruses?
Examples of nonliving things: rocks, dirt, soil, air, water
List levels of classification in order: Kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species
A kingdom is: the largest division of living things
5 kingdoms are: Animals, plants, protists, bacteria, and fungus
What is sometimes split in two? Bacteria - Archaebacteria and Eubacteria
Animal kingdom is divided into: Vertebrates and invertebrates
Vertebrates are: Animals with a backbone
Invertebrates are: Animals without a backbone
Examples of vertebrates: fish, mammals, birds, reptiles, dogs, rhino, hippo
Examples of invertebrates: spiders, crabs, jellyfish, insects
Plant kingdom is divided into: Vascular and nonvascular
Vascular plants are: plants that have the structures that carry food and water through their roots, stems, and leaves.
Nonvascular plants are: plants that don't have those structures or true roots, stems, and leaves.
Examples of vascular: trees, grass, tomato plants
Examples of nonvascular: moss, liverwort
