"4-LS1-1. Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction."
Living things are made up of cells and reproduce. Living things need energy, water, and food to survive. Living things can be animals, plants, or fungi.
Living Things: Living things are organisms that are capable of growing, reproducing, and responding to their environment. Examples of living things include animals, plants, fungi, and bacteria Habitats: A habitat is the natural environment in which a living thing lives and grows. Different living things have different habitats and may require specific climate, food sources, and other resources to survive Adaptation: Adaptation is the process of change by which an organism or species becomes better suited to its environment. Examples of adaptations include physical features like fur and wings, as well as behaviors like hibernation and migration
Living things can be divided into two categories: prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Prokaryotes are single-celled organisms, like bacteria, and eukaryotes are multi-celled organisms, like animals. Living things can survive in extreme conditions, such as the deep ocean and the frozen Arctic. Living things can be found almost everywhere on Earth, from the highest mountain peaks to the depths of the ocean.
