How do paramecium satisfy the characteristics of living things?
Reproduction : binary fission
Excretion : contractile vacuole
Nutrition : have a mouth
Locomotion/movement : cilia all around the body
Breathing : through the cell membrane
Sensitivity : sensory structures
Growth : increase in size after binary fission
The video below shows several paramecium feeding. They are using their cilia to move.
Hope this helps.
