What is MRS C GREN?
The essential 8 life processes that are needed to classify an object as living.

How many examples can you provide of plants carrying out each of the letters in MRS C GREN?

MRS C GREN (a mnemonic of the 8 life processes)

Movement- The change in direction e.g. Humans move arms and legs. Flowers turn to face the sun.
Respiration- The use of energy from food e.g. Plants taking in CO2 and giving off O2. (when energy is released from food)
Sensitivity- Change due to environment/surroundings e.g. When you feel cold the hairs on your arms stands up.
Circulation- When organisms are able to move food, gasses and wastes around their body e.g. The circulation of blood throughout the human body.
Growth- Increasing change/development in height/weight/cells e.g. Humans grow taller and heavier in weight.
Reproduction- The process of recreation of a separate living organism. e.g. Seed dispersal
Excretion- The disposal of unwanted waste e.g. Plants dispose of Oxygen
Nutrition- The creating/eating of food e.g. Taking in nutrients from the sun and making food (sugar).

Mrs C Gren is a list of processes that an object most have to be considered as living therefore Mrs C Gren is important.
ALL LIVING OBJECTS NEED ALL 8 LIFE PROCESSES TO BE CONSIDERED A LIVING ORGANISM .
