Respiration is the release of energy from glucose or another organic chemical in our cells. Respiration happens in ALL living things.

Sensitivity is very important. How would you know if something was fit te eat if you could not smell or taste it? How would you escape danger?

Here are the seven activities of all living things. If you remember that someone has an auntie called MRS GREN you will be able to remember all seven activities.

  1. Movement
  2. Respiration
  3. Sensitivity
  4. Growth
  5. Reproduction
  6. Excretion
  7. Nutrition

Most of this is common sense. You can move around from place to place and so can most animals. A few animals like barnacles can only do this when they are young larvae. Adult barnacles are firmly stuck onto the rock, but they can still move their legs to catch food. Animals move to:

  1. find shelter,
  2. escape from predators and other danger,
  3. find food,
  4. find a mate

Respiration is the release of energy from glucose or another organic chemical in our cells. Respiration happens in ALL living things.

Sensitivity is very important. How would you know if somkething was fit to eat if you could not smell or taste it? How would you escape from danger?

Growth —— we all do it.

Reproduction: this is fun or is it hard work?

Excretion means getting rid of the poisonous waste products from the chemical reactions in our bodies. We breathe out carbon dioxide and we urinate.

Nutrition. We have to eat to provide the materials for growth, repair and to provide us with energy.

Now write out your revision index card. The red words go on one side and the blue words on the other.
