Characteristics of life

Living things grow and develop.

Living Things Perform Chemical Reactions

Inside living things, very complex chemical reactions are taking place. Chemical reactions take place outside of living organisms as well, but not on anywhere near the same level. A living organism is a mini-chemistry.


Living things grow

Well, first you must eat a lot of food and get your rest. These things are necessary for your body to grow. Like you, other living things also grow. Almost all living things start their lives as smaller infant-like creatures. Over a period of time, they grow and develop into adults.
