Science Mod 10

Apologia Exploring Creation Science Classification Module 10

Life Classification System Criteria to distinguish between life and non-life.
Five Kingdom System Classifies living organisms in biology.
Study of Life Biology
Kingdom Monera Group of microscopic organisms, the simplest form of life, made of prokaryotic cells.
What Kingdom is bacteria an example of? Kingdom Monera
Kingdom Protista Group similar to Monera, but are made of eukaryotic cells and are much larger. A few of them make their own food, but not all.
Kingdom Fungi Group where most of the organisms feed on dead organisms.
Pathogen An organism that causes disease.
Kingdom Plantae Group that contains organisms that make their own food (plants).
Dehydrated food When almost all water has been removed and the item can be stored for a long time.
How did people store food before refrigeration? They salted it to reduce bacterial growth.
Are all bacteria pathogenic? No, the bacteria that live inside your body can help you.
Example of good bacteria: Intestine dwelling bacteria, like vitamin K, help you digest your food.
How can bacteria help make cheese? Bacteria starter is added to milk and it produces lactic acid. It separates the curds and we use curds to make cheese.
How can bacteria help the earth? Decomposes dead organisms.
Plants make their own food through this process. Photosynthesis
Protista is split into these groups: Protozoa and Algae
What Protista group is the most single-celled and tend to behave like little animals? Protozoa
What Protista group is like plants? Algae
Where do Protista live? Freshwater
Decomposer Organisms that break down the dead remains of other organisms.
Mycelium the actual fungus
Shelf fungi Fungi that grows on dead or dying trees.
Mold General term used for different fungi that grows on food.
Vegetative reproduction The process by which one part of a plant can form new roots and develop into a complete plant.
Stems Help transport the nutrients and water to the leaves of a plant.
Roots Absorbs water and nutrients from the soil.
Cell Wall Surrounds the outside membrane of a plant.
Central Vacuole Organelle in a plant that fills with water.
What could cause a flower to wilt? It may be unable to absorb enough water to keep its turgor pressure up.
Most of a plant's photosynthesis takes place in its leaves. Where does the rest of the photosynthesis take place? In the stems.
What would happen to a plant cell if it did not have a cell wall? Your Answer: It would explode.
If an organism is not a single-celled prokaryotic cell, not a single-celled eukaryotic cell, not a form of algae, not a fungus, and not a plant, it is an animal and belongs in .... Kingdom Animalia
Cyclops Microscopic animal with one eye.
Members of kingdoms Monera and Plantae can be classified based only on .... their cells.
