7-1 Characteristics of Living Things - Discussion Question


We have spent the past week learning about the characteristics of living things as they pertain to animals in the wild. What we have not discussed is the fact that humans are also part of the animal kingdom and we have developed certain characteristics that have made us one of the most successful species on earth.

Identify and explain some of these characteristics. How may these characteristics impact the earth both positively and negatively.

You may post your thoughts to this question as a response directly on this blog or you may write them down in your notebooks.

uhh humans have many characteristics.
humans are smart
because they were able to make people go into space and out of this planet or make cures and stuff
they have brains like zombie anihillator said which also relates 2 being smart
humans have senses
like see, touch, smell, hear, taste which helps them do stuff in every day life
and yeah
they have a lot of characteristics

yeah...Humans take a part of our Earth negatively by killing animals for jackets and coats. We also cut down trees to make more land, but trees give us oxygen. We take apart of the Earth positivly by trying to help save the animals and try to walk instead of using cars and polluting the ozone layer. Humans have characteristics that help us everyday of our life.

i agree wid allyson
NEGATiVE:
yes, we take a huge part of the earth negatively by killing animals for their fur, skin, blah. Cutting down trees for wood and building more houses, buildings blah again

POSiTiVE:
WE ARE SMART, THE PEOPLE THAT LOVE ANIMALS TRY AND SAVE THEM FROM BEING HUNTED (LIKE THAT I SAID ABOVE). SOME PEOPLE TRY AND SAVE THE environment.
