Characteristics of living things6.Digestion- Chemically changing (breaking down) food substances,and getting rid of wastes7.Absorption- Passage of Digested products (food substances)through membranes and into body fluids8.Circulation- Movement of substances throughout the body9.Assimilation- Changing absorbed substances into chemicallydifferent substances10.Excretion- Removal of wastes
