Order of life: Quark, Atom, Molecule, Organelle, Cell, Tissue, Organ, Organ Sys, Organism?

I'm teaching my son biology and want to confirm the order of life. Is the order and desc correct?

Quark: Simply energy. Can’t be seen under any microscope.

Atom: Made from quarks. Has protons, neutrons. These make molecules.

Molecule: These are made from Atoms. Examples of molecules are: Hydrogen, Oxygen.

Organelle: Made of molecules and are the small organs in each cell. Examples in aminal cells are: Neucleus, Ribosome, Lysosome.

Cell: Made up of organelles. Cells are the building blocks of life.

Tissue: Made from similar cells. Each organ has specific types of cells that make that particular organ and its parts.

Organ: Similar types of tissue (example muscle tissue, heart tissue) makeup an organ.

Organ System: Organs that work together to help an organism execute a specific function (breathing, thinking, etc) are part of an organ system.

Organism: An organism is the person/thing.

Update:

UPDATE:

Would heart muscle, bicep muscle and tricep muscle be made of the same TISSUE? If so, how does the body know to send some tissue to the bicep versus tricep? Also, how then do you explain the different shapes and strengths of the muscles if they have the same tissues?

    The order is correct, and almost everything written is correct. A few notes, though

    QUARK: SIMPLY ENERGY. CAN’T BE SEEN UNDER ANY MICROSCOPE. – quarks are packets of energy with masslike quality. They are not only too small to be seen under a microscope, they are thought not exist in nature except as pairs or triplets

    ATOM: MADE FROM QUARKS. HAS PROTONS, NEUTRONS. THESE MAKE MOLECULES. – three quarks make a proton, and three are needed to make a neutron. An atom will have one or more protons and zero or more neutrons. But it will also have an electron for each proton, and this is not made from quarks. So, an atom is made from quarks, but not just quarks

    MOLECULE: THESE ARE MADE FROM ATOMS. EXAMPLES OF MOLECULES ARE: HYDROGEN, OXYGEN.

    ORGANELLE: MADE OF MOLECULES AND ARE THE SMALL ORGANS IN EACH CELL. EXAMPLES IN AMINAL CELLS ARE: NEUCLEUS, RIBOSOME, LYSOSOME.

    CELL: MADE UP OF ORGANELLES. CELLS ARE THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF LIFE. – Cells are compsed of organelles, but more: the are also made of cytoplasm containing those organelles and wrapped in a cell membrane

    TISSUE: MADE FROM SIMILAR CELLS. EACH ORGAN HAS SPECIFIC TYPES OF CELLS THAT MAKE THAT PARTICULAR ORGAN AND ITS PARTS. A tissue is a set of cells of the same type working together to perform a function.

    ORGAN: SIMILAR TYPES OF TISSUE (EXAMPLE MUSCLE TISSUE, HEART TISSUE) MAKEUP AN ORGAN. – This one is not quite right. An organ is a structure that contains at least two different types of tissue functioning together for a common purpose.

    ORGAN SYSTEM: ORGANS THAT WORK TOGETHER TO HELP AN ORGANISM EXECUTE A SPECIFIC FUNCTION (BREATHING, THINKING, ETC) ARE PART OF AN ORGAN SYSTEM. - Organ systems are composed of two or more different organs that work together to provide a common function. There are 10 major organ systems in the human body: Skeletal System, Muscular System, Circulatory System, Nervous System, Respiratory System, Digestive System, Excretory System, Endocrine System, Reproductive System and the Lymphatic/Immune System.

    ORGANISM: AN ORGANISM IS THE PERSON/THING. – This is correct. “Thing” in this sentence means an individual form of life, such as a plant, animal, bacterium, protist, or fungus. It has a body made up of organ systems in the case of larger organisms.

    * Edit material

    * Would heart muscle, bicep muscle and tricep muscle be made of the same TISSUE?

    Yes, if you dont include the ligaments and surrounding connective tissue or the nerves and vessels - just the myocytes.

    * If so, how does the body know to send some tissue to the bicep versus tricep?

    The DNA informs the organ how much material to take out of the blood and how to turn it into myocytes and where to put them relative to each other.

    * Also, how then do you explain the different shapes and strengths of the muscles if they have the same tissues?

    Different strands of DNA control the organization at different loci. A tricepts muscle uses some different parts of the DNA to organize itself than a gluteus muscle.

  • and organ is defined as having multiple types of tissue. For instance the lungs have vasculature, they have different layers of membranes, they have muscles attached, they have glands for secreting mucus, cillia for moving the mucus around, nervous tissue... you get the idea.

    Also, you may want to get more in depth into your "molecule" bit, describing proteins as molecules, because that's what organelle's are made of. At the very least, I'd advise not choosing molecules that are also elements (i.e. water or ammonia) to avoid confusion when he sees hydrogen and oxygen are also atoms.

    Fundamentally, this is all correct. I would change your description of "Organ" a bit, though. Each organ is composed of multiple kinds of tissues. So, for example, the stomach has muscle cells, blood vessels, connective tissue, secretory cells that produce mucus, and different secretory cells that produce acid and still different ones that produce and secrete enzymes.

    Your example of muscle is another situation where you do have muscle cells, but you also have connective tissue (tendons and ligaments...), blood vessels, nerve cells and so on.

    Make sense?

    yes that is correct

    apart from one small thing with the atom description

    technically an atom is made up of protons, neutrons and electrons and a lot of empty space. Protons, neutrons and electrons themselves are made of quarks.

    yep, you got it.quarks are a particle of an atom.if you need more info.
