The meaning of life (Dollygirl's Grade Seven)

Dollygirl's science assignment: to design a creature and demonstrate how it meets all four criteria of living beings.

This is what she came up with:

New! Exclusive! It's...BLUB™!!!  (She included a drawing of a fluffy-looking thing with horns, fangs, large round eyes, and a bow tied on its long tail.)

She can suck up her BLUB™ Pellets!  (demonstrating ability to convert energy and derive nourishment)

She turns blue if you put her in the sun!  (demonstrating ability to respond to changes in the environment)

Turn off the lights, and her cells glow!  (demonstrating that she is made of cells, which we assume contain DNA)

ALSO BUY Her Children:  Blub™, Bib™, Bob™.  (Demonstratng her ability to reproduce.)

(I gave Dollygirl full marks.)
