Plant like Protists V.S. Plants!!!

Well folks we have plant like protists and plants but plant like protists are not plants!! We are going to look at how they are alike. Plant like protists are not plants because they don't have leaves or roots. Also plant like plants are multicellular and plant like protists are singled celled.

Plant like protists produce there own food just like plants! You might be wondering what is a protists? Well protists are one of the six types of kingdoms in the world.They are microscopic creatures. They live every where!!!  Now let's explore different types of algae! Let's go!

This is green algae. This algae can make air. They make 75% of our air!
This is dionflagellates. They make red tides.

This is brown algae.These guys are seaweed.

Here is cool red algae!

 This red plant are one of the oldest groups of eukaryotic algae, and also one of the largest, with about 5,000-6,000 species  of mostly multicellular.

 Last photo... Here is euglenoids
Euglenoids have tails to move.

Now for the video I promised. Its is about protist in action!

Another way protists and plants are alike is they both need water and need sunlight.
Moving on from protists we have... Algae!
 Algae are a large and diverse group of simple, typically autotrophic organisms, ranging from unicellular to multicellular forms, such as the giant kelp that grow to 65 meters in length! Wow! I did not know that! Yes there are red,green and brown! This video is about man made algae! Let's watch it!

Algae are found in the fossil record dating back to approximately 3 billion years.
That is cool! Do you want to know a cool fact about algae?
It makes air like plants do!!!  They also make red tides(Bloody tides yuck!).Well that is it thanks for watching and reading my article.
