What makes us livng

Characteristics of organisms

What four properties do all living organisms have. Growth, organization, response and reproduction.
What is organization? When a cell or a group of cells have a specific role to fill out.
What is growth? The process of when an organism increases in size over time.
What is response? When an organism reacts to its surrondings or enviorment.
What is reproduction? When an ogranism makes offspring simmilar to its self.
Example of organization. The boy’s bone cells keep his bones healthy.
Example of Growth. The plant grew two inches overnight.
Example of response. The frightened cat ran up the tree to escape the dog.
Example of reproduction. The mushroom reproduces using spores.
Why do organisms need energy? Because without energy, the organism could not move, grow or essentially survive.
Are viruses alive? Simply put, no they are not.
Explain why viruses are not alive. Viruses do not carry all four of the living characteristics.
What is sexual reproduction? When two sets of DNA from the parent organisms bond to create an offspring possesing traits from each parent.
What is asexual reproduction? When an an offspring is created from one parent, it is an exact copy of its one parent. (Is usually a single celled organism or plant)
Which type of reproduction leads to greater diversity? Sexual reproduction would lead to greater diversity
Why does sexual reproduction lead to greater diversity? Sexual reproduction leads to greater diversity because two different sets of DNA are used to create an offspring, making the offspring its own organism.
