(a) Cellular Association: Living things are composed of single cell (Unicellular Organisms) or many cells (Multicellular Organisms) which associate with each other to perform vital functions of the body.

(b) Response to Stimuli: All living things can respond and adapt themselves to any change in the environment.

(c) Reproduction: Living things reproduce either sexually or asexually to produce offsprings of their own kind.

(d) Growth: All living things grow, develop and eventually die.

(e) Metabolism: Living things need energy to carry out their vital life processes.
