1. CHARACTERISTIC OF LIVING THINGS

To know if it´s a living thing ask these simple question:
  • Does it eat?
  • Does it move?
  • Does it breath?
  • Does grow?
  • Does it reproduce?
  • Does it interact?

6. HOW ARE LIVING THINGS CLASSIFIED

POSTER: THE FIVE KINGDOMS (Digital Resources)


Five Kingdoms of living things





external image five+kingdoms.jpg

All living things are divided into 5 kingdoms. Each kingdom has certain characteristics that all members of that group shared. They are:

Animals, Plants, Fungi, Protoctists, Bacteria (Prokaryotes)




external image 5+kingdoms.png



The characteristics that Linnaeus used to divide all organisms into one of the five groups included:

  • How many cells made up their bodies, if their cells were very simple or had complex parts
  • If they can move on their own
  • If they could make their own food, or had to eat other creatures to survive ...
