Living Things (What Is Life)
Transcript of Living Things (What Is Life)
Bananas, trees and snails all have lifespans. Once these beings have grown to their limit, their lifespan finishes. In the wild, these creatures can each live for a fairly long time, as for a banana's ripeness differs depending on the time however eventually, it's ripeness diminishes and it is no longer edible. A snail can live for 2 to 3 years, and trees can live for many decades.
Sunflowers,trees and snails must obtain energy in order to live. Sunflowers and trees obtain energy by using photosynthesis, in this process, they take in the sun's energy in order to live. They breathe by taking in carbon dioxide and letting out oxygen. Snails breathe oxygen and eat plants and other vegetation, the garden snail for example has thousands of teeth in order to eat tough plants and leaves.
As all living beings do, both snails, trees and sunflowers have the ability to repair themselves. A snail heals from its wounds and trees and sunflowers regrow their branches. Therefore they all naturally repair themselves.
Both snails and trees reproduce. Snails reproduce the same way as humans do however trees reproduce in a much more unique way. Trees naturally reproduce due to them being totipotent, this means that they can reproduce and an entire organism can be grown simply by it dropping a single seed into the soil.
In conclusion, I have found many varied examples of life in each of the qualifying categories, and have learnt much about nature and life itself.

Snails and trees produce waste. Although trees do not produce waste in the same way we do, they produce waste nonetheless. Trees take in carbon dioxide and they produce waste in the form of oxygen, which in turn helps us live. Snails however produce waste the same way we do, I witnessed this firsthand when a snail produced it's waste in my bag.
Adapt to environment
Both trees and snails adapt to the environment and adjust to it's situations. Trees adapt in multiple ways, first, throughout the seasons, the colours of the leaves vary due to the chemical changes. Secondly,
they drop their leaves in order to survive the cold winter. Snails naturally adapt to their environment by having shells, which protect them from predators and other threats.
There are seven specific categories in which living beings are placed in order to qualify as living. There are many beings that qualify into each category, and they can be found almost anywhere,especially in forests.
In the forest,I found various creatures that grow, Including plants and snails.Both plants and snails grow in time from babies to fully matured adults.
