Description

Introduce students to the 6 characteristics of living things with this engaging interactive lesson! Assign the presentation for students to go through individually OR present it to the whole class. The presentation includes links to several brief and interesting videos, so kids are ENGAGED the whole time. Each section has a brief "check for understanding" question, too.


Please click VIEW PREVIEW (above) to see the entire presentation!

The 6 characteristics of life presented are:

  • Made of cells
  • Grow and develop
  • Reproduce and pass on traits to offspring
  • Respond to their internal environment and external environment
  • Obtain and use energy to grow, move, and process information
  • Made of organic molecules (proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids)

NGSSMS-LS2-3
Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem. Emphasis is on describing the conservation of matter and flow of energy into and out of various ecosystems, and on defining the boundaries of the system. Assessment does not include the use of chemical reactions to describe the processes.
NGSSMS-LS1-1
Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells; either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells. Emphasis is on developing evidence that living things are made of cells, distinguishing between living and non-living cells, and understanding that living things may be made of one cell or many and varied cells.
NGSSHS-LS1-3
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis. Examples of investigations could include heart rate response to exercise, stomate response to moisture and temperature, and root development in response to water levels. Assessment does not include the cellular processes involved in the feedback mechanism.
