chlorophyll a chemical that causes the leaves of plants to appear green -- Its purpose is to absorb sunlight
classification a system used to group living things
kingdom a way to group living things by internal form and structure

organism a living thing
photosynthesis the process by which leaves make food
Organisms can be classified into kingdoms, species, genus and class. Which is the smallest and the largest? Species -- smallest kingdom -- largest

nonvascular plants plants that are smaller, have no tubes and grow clase to the ground to soak up water.
3 characteristics plant cells 1.make their own food using chlorophyll/sunlight 2.have a central vacuole 3.have a cell wall around the cell membrane to give the cells more support
3 characteristics of animal cells 1.animal cells cannot make their own food 2.only have a cell membrane (our skin) 3.require other animal and plant cells for energy (food)
What is cellular organization in animals? tissues -- muscles organs -- heart, kidney, lung organ systems -- circulatory, muscular...
