How it moves: It moves by the cilia.

How it reproduce: Sexual and asexual 2 or 3 times a day and reproduce under matter stress.

How it eats: Uses it cilia to get food, They feed on algal scum and other microorganisms and other small organisms eat them.

How it responds to the environment: They can respond to temperature,food,oxygen and toxins and have a very simple defense mechanism. They play a role in carbon dioxide cycle because they eat bacteria is decaying animals.

How it moves: It moves by a flagellum.

How it reproduce: It splits itself in half and they need warmer temperatures to reproduce better.

How it eats: The euglena is both heterotrophic (must consume food) and autotrophic (can make its own food) It also has chloroplasts mostly gets food from photosynthesis and gets nutrients absorbing them across their cell membrane.

How it responds to the environment: It finds away of finding light. Turn green when it eats algae.

How it moves: Change their body shape (pseudopod)

How it reproduce: Binary tission it divides into 2 and reproduce a sexually.

How it eats: Surrounds food with its pseudopods.

How it responds to the environment: Water squirts out of it and allows oxygen into the cell. Water flows through it by a process called osmosis.

How it moves: With its 2 flagella. (The 2 flagella beat together and the ball rolls)

How it reproduce: Daughter colonies mature the parent ball bursts open and release daughter colonies.

How it eats: Photosynthesis and their own chlorophyll.

How it responds to the environment: Cells arrange along the periphery of a hollow mucilaginous sphere. It is also seen with a naked eye.
