Biology and the life sciences teach that all living things share common characteristics. Teach your students the 8 Characteristics of Living Things with this colorful PowerPoint:
The eight characteristics covered are:
*living things grow and develop
*living things are based on a universal genetic code
*living things respond to the environment
*living things are made of cells
living things reproduce
*living things maintain a stable internal environment
*living things obtain and use material and energy
*living things, as a group, evolve
After presenting the eight characteristics (each with pictures and examples), the PowerPoint applies each of them to a Pigmy Seahorse so that students can see how the characteristics pertain to a living organism.
This PowerPoint is designed for secondary school science students.
