There are 4 different types of protists! By Kaitlyn Insogna


Have you ever wondered how euglenas get there food? Well they make there own food by photosynthesis.

other facts :

* they move from there one Flagella

* They reproduce by Asexural, they make a copy of them selfs by Mitosis

* they couldn't live without there eyespot because they make there food by photosynthesis which they need light to do that.


The volvox moves by its 2 flagella, the beat together to roll l the ball through the water, How do volvox eat? well the volvox have chlorophyll that will make there own food by photosynthesis which they need light to make them food.

How do they reproduce? well the volvox has a thing called daughter colonies which are small dark green balls and when they mature the parent ball bursts open and lets out the daughter colonies. Without the volvoxes eyespot they wouldn't be able to survive because they need to find light to make there food.


How does the amoeba get its food? well the amoeba uses pseudopods which is a bubble like substances.

What is an volvox?

an volvox is an unicellular organism,that has an eyespot and without it they would die!

What is an paramecium?

A paramecium is a unicellular organism, that is a heterotrophic too>
