Organism

a living thing

Cell

the smallest unit of an organism that is capable of life

Chlorophyll

a green chemical in plants that allows thme to use the sun's energy to make their own food

Tissue

Similiar cells that have the same job or function come together to make this.

Organ

Tissues of different kinds come together to make this.

Organ System

group of organs that work together to perform a specific function

classification

the science of finding patterns among living things

vascular

plants composed of or containing vessels. Conifers, flowering plants are examples. There are also seeded and seedless vascular plants

nonvascular

plants without this tube like tissue. Hornworts, mosses and ferns are examples

vertebrates

Members of the animal kingdon that have a backbone

invertebrates

Members of the animal kingdom that do not have a backbone

fungus

members of a kingdom that contains one celled and many celled living things that absorb food from their environment. Yeasts, molds, and mushrooms are examples.

protist

A member of a kingdom that contains on-celled and many celled living things, some that make food and some that hunt for food.

nucleus

a dense structure in a cell

membrane

a thin envelope surrounding the nucleus of a cell

bacteria

a member of either if the two kingdoms of one-celled living things that hamve no nucleus, or center, in their cell body

5 Kingdoms

Plant kingdom, Fungus kingdom, Protist Kingdom, Bacteria Kingdom, Animal Kingdom

Chlorophyll

The green chemical found in many plants

Chloroplast

A leaf will make food in its cells if it contains this

Mitochondrion

helps supply energy from a cell

animals cannot make their own food, animals can move from one place to another

2 things that make plants different from animals

vascular and non vascular

2 divisions of the plant kingdom

vertebrate and invertebrate

2 divisions of the animal kingdom

Clean the environment, use in antibiotics, yeast used for breads

Some functions of fungi

lettuce and celery are vascular plants, liverworts and mosses are non vascular plants

give examples of vascular and non vascular plants

Similiar cells join together to make tissues, tissues that perform the same function come together to make an organ such as the heart, Organs work together to make an organ syster

How cells come together to from organ systems

Plant cells have chloropyll and a cell wall and animal cells do not

the difference between plant and animal cells
