What is life? What does it take to be considered "alive"? In this unit we will explore some fundamental questions about the nature of life and the characteristics that all living things have in common here on Earth. We will explore how living things are related, organized into groups, via classification...and we will learn the different characteristics of the 2 domains and 5 kingdoms of life.
