In this unit you will review and extend your knowledge of the differences between living and non-living things based on the three vital functions: nutrition, interaction and reproduction.
You will begin to study cell structure. It is very important that you understand that a cell is a living thing because it performs the three vital functions. You will also learn about unicellular and multicellular organisms.
You will also investigate and learn about classifying into the five kingdoms. You should enjoy looking for the common characteristics and identifying differences between living things. You should also focus on how living things perform the three vital functions.
In this unit you will be introduced to the scientific method. You will establish hypotheses and predict results, learning that hypotheses do not need to be correct.
