1.1.3 excrete waste
1.1.4 move
1.1.5 reproduce
1.1.6 grow and develop
1.1.7 homeostasis (they control their internal conditions
1.1.8 respond to their surroundings
2 Variety of Living Organisims
2.1 Virus
2.1.1 Smallest out of the 6 organisims
2.1.2 Pathogen
2.2 Fungi
2.2.1 they can be single or multicelled, it depends on the fungi
2.2.2 the cell wall is made of chitin
2.2.3 they store energy using molecules of glycogen
2.2.4 they like to grow in dark, humid places
