2

What is the difference between multicellular and unicellular?

Multicellular means more than one cell whereas unicellular have one cell.

3

What type of organisms are unicellular?

Animalia: Multicellular
Plants: Unicellular
Bacteria: Noncellular

4

What is the thing in plant cells that make the plant cells green?

Chloroplast

5

Where do plants consume water?

They consume water at the roots, and then goes up the stem and into the leaves via fibre.

6

8

What are the 5 kingdoms?

Animalia, fungi, plantae, protista and monera.

9

How do plants consume food?

They photosynthesise and make their own food.

10

Use an example to explain structure features used to classify organisms.

Invertebrae/vertebrae, uni/multicellular, endoskeleton, exoskeleton, etc

11

What is the difference between prions, viroids and viruses between other organisms?

Prions, viroids and viruses are non living.

12

What are tissues made up of?

Cells

13

State the relationship between cells, tissues, organs systems and multicellular systems.

Tissues are made up of the same types of cells. Organ systems are made up tissues.

14

How many chambers are there in the heart?

4

15

True or false:
Do all vertebrates have an endoskeleton?

True

16

How long does it take for a red blood cell to die and be replaced?

Help preform photosynthesis

18

What is "Mechanical Digestion"?

Physically eating breaking down food into smaller pieces.

18

What are "Enzymes"?

Enzymes is an ingredient in saliva which breaks down food.

19

What is "Chemical Digestion"?

Chemical digestion involves the use of chemicals called enzymes to break down food into small molecules. These molecules can then pass through the walls of the small intestine and into the bloodstream.

20

What does the liver do?

It is the largest internal organ and it breakdancing down fat, controls blood sugar, destroys poison and stores Vitamin A and Vitamin D. It also produces bile which is a liquid that goes into the gall bladder.
