Science8: Cells & Systems Exam Prep

Here are the Kahoots and Quizlets we did.

Osmosis and Diffusion

A cell is Like

Parts of  a Cell

Parts of a Microscope

Microscope Jumble!

Body Systems


Quizlets

Cells Parts & Microscopes

Cells & Systems Vocabulary

Here are the Key points from our Unit.

1.0 Characteristics of Living Things
They are made of cells, require energy, grow and develop, respond to their surroundings,
reproduce and have adaptations to survive
All organisms have structures which perform specific life functions
Animals have organs and different organs that work together to perform a common function
are organized into organ systems

2.0 Cells play a vital role
A Microscope is a scientific tool used to see very small structures
The cell is the basic unit of life - all organisms have at least one cell
Structures in cells are called organelles which carry out specific life functions
Organisms can be single celled or multi-celled
Substances move in and out of cells by diffusion and osmosis
All cells have a selectively permeable membrane vs permeable or impermeable
Cells organize into tissue, then tissue forms organs and organs work together to make organ systems

3.0 Healthy Human Body Systems
Digestive System, Circulatory System & Respiratory System

itallics are tested at a lower level than the first two key points
