  •  1215   p5    Science – Living things.  All living things need water to survive.  The smallest living things are viruses (this is debatable) and bacteria (germs).  We have more living organisms in our bodies than animals on Earth.  
  • Places where living things survive are in the biosphere.  Different places in the biosphere ( the place where life is generated and sustained) are called biomes, such as the ocean, forests, tundra, prairie, rivers, lakes, mountains, etc.  Biomes can also be referred to as habitats.  Some biomes are able to sustain more forms of life than other biomes and the interactions of the various living organisms are more complex.
  • All living things are made up of cells, and cells contain water.  The simplest living thing may only have one cell, but it is still a complicated and wonderful organism.  The complete workings of any organism is called a ‘genome’.  Answers in Genesis says this about the ‘simplest’ of living organisms:

Mycoplasma genitalium has the smallest known genome of any free-living organism, containing 482 genes comprising 580,000 bases.  Of course, these genes are only functional with pre-existing translational and replicating machinery, a cell membrane, etc. But Mycoplasma can only survive by parasitizing more complex organisms, which provide many of the nutrients it cannot manufacture for itself.  (Answers in Genesis)

This is not so simple after all, is it?
