The Learning Zone: The Living Animal

Mnemonics are helpful in lots of situations. On this site Mrs. Nerg helps you remember the seven life processes that show that animals are alive. These processes are Movement, Reproduction, Sensitivity, Nutrition, Excretion, Respiration, and Growth—MRS NERG. Clicking on each process takes you to lots of information. Learn about how identifying an animal’s teeth often shows you what they eat. Find the chemical reaction that results in respiration. Examine each structure of a cell to see what its role is. See the difference in growth between animals with internal and external skeletons. After you finish examining each process, you can take a quiz to show how much you remember.
