This weekend we will celebrate Jesus’ Ascension into Heaven; what does this mean to you?
Name one type of cell that makes up the human body.
Biology is the study of living things and their environment. It covers a wide range of topics like anatomy, physiology, genetics, and ecology. Biology helps us understand how living things interact with each other and their environment.
Introduction to Biology
Cell: A cell is the basic unit of life. All living things are made of cells and they carry out all the functions of life. Photosynthesis: Photosynthesis is the process by which plants use the energy of sunlight to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen. DNA: DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid. It is a molecule that contains genetic instructions for the development, functioning, and reproduction of all living organisms.
